Getting this to work for now turned out to be fairly easy, though a bit
of a kludge.  I tweaked one of the tag classes slightly, copied the
entire web-inf/classes hierarchy from the exploded .war file in the ginp
context, into the same spot in ROOT, copied a few configuration files
over, and it all started working almost the way I want.  It's not
perfect yet, but it's getting there.

Thanks for the comments, Pid and Chris; they gave me a good starting point.
