THis is great.  I think that while our goal is perfect integration, I 
think getting it working - not perfectly integrated, but working - is 
an excellent first step.  It will give us feedback about what we need 
in Geronimo to help Tomcat integrate, and what Tomcat needs to do to 
become more integratable. (integrable?)
