How adventurous are you feeling?

Tomcat 7 (not yet released - you'd need to build it from source) has the
concept of alias resources that can be defined at the Context level.
>From the docs:

<attribute name="alises" required="false">
<p>This attribute provides a list of external locations from which to
load resources for this context. These external locations will not be
emptied if the context is un-deployed. The list of aliases should be of
the form <code>"/aliasPath1=docBase1,/aliasPath2=docBase2"</code> where
<code>aliasPathN</code> must include a leading '/' and
<code>docBaseN</code> must be an absolute path to either a .war file or
a directory.</p>
