Here's one idea.  The Manager webapp is designed to manage all apps in
one Host, for better or worse.  So if you want to have it manage only
one app, put that app AND the Manager webapp (or a copy of it) in that
Host.  That means defining multiple Hosts in server.xml, each with its
own appBase, and moving your webapps around as needed.  It's not a big
deal, doesn't require any coding.
