Stellar. Well, I wanted to get somewhere with Seam and whatever the official solution is becomes an easy drop-in replacement anyway.
, which if we think properly about the problem domain, we can get around.

Great. I await ideas. I just need to get the reference somehow. The impl in the jndi-bridge folder does a JNDI lookup, btw, so that at least is a generic approach. I'd like to see something suggested in the spec or WB ref doc. Clearly the Seam project is not the only thing that will need to solve this problem.

We've been through this on the phone - we can inject into a managed servlet object and propagate it into JSF from there... (I know, I have to get servlet injection working in JBoss first - I spoke to Jason and we have a plan ;-)

Right. And I've said I just haven't gotten to that yet (and from what you just said it wouldn't work yet anyway). So, for now, the bridge let's me move forward with actually getting some other stuff developed and then we can circle back and correct it. There really are few places where we need to go through this portal (Dan pictures a hole opening in the universe).
