Jetty 6 with Continuations

Jetty 6's feature list is very tempting:
The 6.0.0alpha3 release of Jetty is now available and provides a 2.4 servlet server in 400k jar, with only 140k of dependencies (2.6M more if you want JSP!!!). But as well as being small, fast, clean and sexy, Jetty 6 supports a new feature called Continuations that will allow scalable AJAX applications to be built, with threadless waiting for asynchronous events.
Wow! I love small, fast and continuation! Gotta try it out!

Jetty was very attractive when Tomcat was big and slow. Then Tomcat 5.5.9 became small enough and very fast. Now here come good reasons to use Jetty again. Can't wait.
