This list is fine.  A normal tomcat valve should work fine in  
geronimo.  IIUC to get your application to use one or more valves you  
set up a valve chain using gbean instances (there is an example in  
the configs/tomcat/src/plan/plan.xml) and refer to it with a valve- 
chain element in a tomcat specific plan (using the http:// namespace, the  
geronimo-tomcat-1.0.xsd schema) or a tomcat config inside a generic  
plan (the tomcat config is in the 
web/tomcat/config-1.0 namespace, the geronimo-tomcat-config-1.0.xsd  

If this doesn't help enough you may need to wait for jeff  
genender :-).  Asking on IRC may also work.
