the Lookup mechanism works only on containers, while ServletWrapper is a 
"leaf" resource.
So the lookup mechanism is never called.

Wouldn't it be possible to have an indexer to handle this?
you can map the "flow" extension to a FileResource+ServletMapperFrame and 
point to the URI of the servlet in charge of handling them.
(a bit like for JSPs [1])
The servlet is located using an internal lookup, so it may be everywhere 
on the server.
Or maybe I just misread what you really want there :)
