You seem to know that you are doing so I'll leave the ball with you ;-)

The situation we're aming for is that when people throw in web.xml:s and web-fragment.xmls and @WebListener:s, the order (of course) follows that of the Servlet specification but we have sneaked in the WeldListener before that. Now how to guarantee portability, that this has also been done when throwing the same application in another appserver is another thing...

Well, yes and no. The list of listeners that JBossWebMetaData has is
ordered (and you can replace it, of course :) ), but there's another
JBossWebMetaData for the shared web.xml that goes before it.

In the shared stuff, there's:
- a security listener which does stuff (ask Anil)
- two JSF listeners

Hum, no :( Now that you mention it, maybe I could do that "shared stuff"
handling in its own deployer, taking the "final" JBossWebMetaData and
merging it with the shared JBossWebMetaData to get a "final final"
