[jboss-user] [Beginners Corner] - AS 5.0: Why touch web.xml for exploded deploys?

Since AS 5.0 does exploded deploys automatically, why do I still need to touch the web.xml?
>From Eclipse if a save and build a source file, I can see (from verifying the timestamps) that AS 5.0 notices that. The class files are momentarily copied to the deploy directory. Apparently the HDScanner does its job. It would be a nobrainer to subsequently redeploy the application. Now I need a seperate ANT task or such so trigger the redeploy by touching web.xml.

>From perspective of automatic development cycles and default Eclipse project implementation we could hugely benefit from not needing the web.xml detour.
