Yes... We had a lot of discussions with James Duncan Davidson, author of
the Servlet API spec up to version 2.2 (he changed position at Sun,
right now), expecially when thinking aobut the idea of Mail Servlets.
And the idea that came out of that discussions was that servlets would
be tied to HTTP (almost) forever.
That's why we abandoned the idea of Mail Servlets and desinged a new API
for James (the Java Apache *E* Mail Server).
