Ok, please share. :)

Ok, I've gotten this a couple of times so obviously I need to update  
the page.

In my scenario, there will be a few different releases that target  
different levels
of functionality. At the core would be exactly what you describe,  
something small
that can either stand alone or be dropped into a J2EE container.

People who want to roll their own security infrastructure, leverage  
J2EE security, etc. certainly can
build on this, but people who want the extra functionality can get it  
in a standalone
environment too.

J2EE compatibility will be a feature, but as a locus of innovation,  
that space has been
pretty arid (which is fine, some people prefer stability over  
innovation). As I mentioned,
however, I want to be able to deploy into modern containers like  
AsyncWeb, NetKernel, etc.

I am interested in hearing them regardless.
