In the Tomcat 4 distribution, there's a couple of filters included in the
example webapp:

* Set the character encoding of an input request if the
  browser didn't send it

* Transparently do compression on the response if the
  browser says it can handle a compressed response

Both of them are small, stand-alone, and generally useful -- but they are
difficult to get at being buried inside a webapp.  I don't know about you,
but that sort of fits my notion of a "component" :-).

I agree that, in a longer term, a jakarta-filters project (like
jakarta-taglibs) would be a good idea.  We need to jump-start the content
and the community a little bit first, though, and the responses so far to
Glenn's proposal seem to indicate some interest.  The sandbox would be a
reasonable place to get started.
