Well, this was essentially my original question - I missed your earlier 
pronouncements on the matter - I joined the list specifically to ask the

That's what I reckoned; I've been poring over the specification. We *are* 
going over to using servlet aliases - we're just going to write up something 
that auto-generates our WEB-INF/web.xml. We're already auto-generating our 
.tld files.
