Improve War file support to allow merging of files other than web.xml

Description

It would be nice to be able to merge war files and in particular to be able to merge specific container deployment descriptors.

This is quite a common requirement - projects that build up deployable WAR files sometimes don't want ot have to build an EAR file (for example, if they're deploying to tomcat).

I have included a patch that creates some support for this. Currently it supports merging descriptors for resin; if this is OK, then support can be added for the other container types fairly easily.
