When creating instaweb we had to choose between supporting a single
servlet or many servlets.  We realised that anything that we could do
with multiple servlets we could do just as easily with a single
servlet (since a servlet is just a function and it easy to write a
function that chooses other functions based on some property (e.g.
URL)) and supporting only a single servlet made instaweb much easier
to write.  So to solve your problem I would write some master
"dispatch" servlet that calls all your current servlet based on URL.
We have written another library, dispatch.plt, for just this purpose.
