------- Additional Comments From rpluem@apache.org  2006-05-31 19:47 -------
It may be a good idea to have this somewhat configurable like this is possible
with mod_jk's recovery_options
(http://tomcat.apache.org/connectors-doc/config/workers.html), but as a default
I would prefer leaving it as it is.

1. The retry behaviour should be only allowed for requests that are idempotent
according to RFC2616 9.1.2, see also 8.1.4 of RFC2616. 
2. Even methods marked as idempotent as GET are not always idempotent, e.g. if
they have a query string.
3. You cannot resend the request to a different Tomcat once you have sent out
data to the client. This would corrupt the response.
