Side note on this one -- it's always bugged me too.

It's a tiny bit of work but conceptually simple.  90% of the work would be local to the DeploymentLoader

Essentially the 'discoverModuleType' method would get reworked to not have return statements
and instead add the types to a list and return a list -- renaming that method to 'discoverModuleTypes'.
 The 'public AppModule load(File jarFile) throws OpenEJBException' method would be altered
to iterate over the list and create modules for each one.  That method already returns an
AppModule, so the code downstream of it is already looking at all "standalone" modules (say
a single ejb-jar.xml) as ears.  So the rest of the code is essentially already ready for it.
