Ok, let me rephrase what you're saying to make sure I
understand you.  You're suggesting we create a project
shell so to speak that has the simple server jar files
in it.  Our users could take that project, drop in a
pear file of their choice, adapt the web.xml and then
build the whole thing with maven or eclipse.  Does that
sound right?
