Subject RE: Annoyance in the deployer

I am using 4.1.29. This was enforced starting sometime after 4.1.24 which
did not require WEB-INF or web.xml. I assumed I was relying on an anomaly
that was  corrected and that it would be the same in 5.x. 

As I work on upgrading to 5.5, this would simplify my installation.

or as Filipe suggested, a flag to change the behavior would also help.
