And you keep missing my point when I say that you can already do that with
Tomcat 4.x, and WARP/WebApp are an addition to that method in terms of
performance and ease of use... We already have and use the functionality
provided by an HTTP-based reverse proxy (TC4.0/4.1, Tomcat HTTP/1.1
connector and mod_proxy in Apache), but we need more :)
