Hmmm. We could use the "jsr77" option ( that is now in 4.1.x ) and generate
JSR77 names only if it is on. 

Or we could just use the other kind of names allways - and have a separate
module that re-register the objects with JSR77 names ( if needed ).

But the real issue is that a product shouldn't "handle JSR77 for
webmodules",  that's plain wrong. The mbeans for WebModule and Servlet
must be handled by tomcat - who is the one that knows when a servlet 
or webmodule is instantiated  or removed or changes state, and can provide
usefull info ( statistics, etc ).

A product that creates some wrappers or dummy objects with JSR77 names 
is useless - they'll have no real management value, since you would manage
the wrong components. 

The EJB container should handle the JSR77 components that are related with 
EJBs, and tomcat ( or whatever servlet implementation ) should handle the 
JSR77 for its components.

( jboss seems to be one case where jsr77 is implemented outside of the 
servlet container ).
