luckily i managed to add a comment for RC8 before cutting it. take a
look at the language and feel free to dive if it isn't strong enough. i
hope to put RC8 to the vote this week but i see no reason not to improve
the documentation.

one problem is that it's a transitional time over at tomcat: active
development is moving over to tomcat 6. tomcat 6 should ship a
statically bound custom JCL implementation created by costin. but will
probably be a tomcat 5 release or two before this happens.
