Sam..  With all due respect...   I do not see this as a complete Gump 
configuration..  In the end this might prove to be a problem with 
tapestry's build but I suspect you'll hit a few more Gumpisms first.  
Prove me wrong.  It was done once or twice before..  ;-)

Right.  All I care about is Gump integration.  I see it as an important 
part of integrating into the Jakarta project.  Code compatibility may 
not directly correspond to community compatibility but Conway's law 
relates them rather heavily...  ;-)
