Subject Re: PATCH org.apache.commons.httpclient.methods.multipart.FilePart

Hey Adrian,
   Thanks for responding.  Contrib class would fine and I 
would be willing to do it.  Do you have a suggestion on a 
name?  I agree with your assessment about configurating 
the whole can of worms, but some solution was better than 
none.  The only other thing I could think of would be 
having a contstructor (for the contrib class) to which you 
could pass the location of $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/web.xml. 
 Parse it for the mappings.
