Don't know what you two disagree on - but I think this is a very 
good point.

Consider my "minimal tomcat distribution" dead - for now. 

I'm not sure about "one distribution with --enable and --disable",
but I think one distribution with different profiles ( and the 
option to create a profile that includes what you need and nothing
else ) is the best choice.

And it seems JMX plus some class loader magic plus some config 
can do that.
