Frontman 2.0 with existing application

I have an existing web app that has multiple servlet mappings in the web.xml, I would like to slowly get rid of all the mappings and replace them with frontman commands. Is there anything wrong/bad by adding the frontman framework to an existing application that has multiple servlets already mapped?
Is there any precautions I should take when migrating over?

Should work fine. FrontMan is specifically designed to stay out of the way when you don't need it.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
