released these without the Apache header in earlier versions (and Tomcat as well) - so I presume
there must be some valid justification for not including an Apache License header in these
files.  Just pointing it out now in case it really needs some attention and has just escaped
being noticed until now.  Comments?

I've certainly noticed them in the past... Machine generated files do not require license
headers. So, IMO, these files are fine.

I do have a question about the version #. IIUC, we are releasing 7.0.0 prior to the TC community.
There may be fixes applied to the Tomcat dev tree prior to their 7.0 release. So, this release
may not exactly match the functionality of the tomcat release. Is everyone evaluating that
in their decision?
