It's not clear to me if the valves-to-filters project completed (I  
haven't been following the tomcat list closely), but I don't  
anticipate that it would cause any problems -- maybe a day of work.  I  
suspect we can simplify our integration since filters have lifecycle  
methods, we won't need to work around their lack in valves like we do
