I'm angry because Tomcat people *fail* to see that no matter how hard 
you try, java is not a solution for mission critical httpd stacks. This 
is not the usual anti-java religion and might come from a unix sysadm, 
it's the light seen after reaching java's metal.

I'm not against a servlet engine having an HTTP stack (we were working 
on adding one to jserv right before tomcat was donated), but I'm angry 
at the Tomcat community where focus has shifted from industrial quality 
servlet engines (as it was jserv) to accademic bloated R&D and 
implementing features (think valves) that nobody ever asked for.

God how much I miss jserv :(
