I expect that the following is your intention, but I think it's worth stating -- this should
be taken up with the Tomcat community. Our goal should be to not have any long-term changes
to Tomcat. We should be working with the Tomcat community to understand our problems and have
our updates applied to Tomcat, not in our externals release. 

In this instance, I don't understand why HTMLManagerServlet needs to be aware of the specific
Manager sub-class, at all. Seems like the Manager interface could have provided an appropriate
method for retrieving the desired information.
