Sorry about that. I didn't realize that my name wasn't allowed. I've
renamed it and it's now available here:

Thanks for pointing out that feature in the maven plugin. I like that
approach a lot and I'm excited to see it released. However it fits a little
bit of a different use case. I think that something like webapp-runner is
cool because it can be used to run either an archived or exploded war file
regardless of what the chosen build system is. This opens it up not only to
other build tools, but also to running apps that get generated from
frameworks like Grails and Play! or even to war files that are exported
from tools like Eclipse. Could be that I'm the only one that finds this
useful, though. I'd love to hear feedback and know if anyone else does.
