Perhaps I just don't undestand how infrequently Apache and Tomcat get used together.

I was under the impression (perhaps incorrectly) that they get used together often enough
to warrant the plugin's inclusion with the Apache source code. (After all, both projects *are*
ASF projects.) But it's perfectly possible that I, and all the web developers I've worked
with over the years, are not an accurrate representation of the Apache user base as a whole.

If the module is not included as a part of Apache, and instead ships with Tomcat, it would
sadden me and many web developers I know, but, Andre, as you point out, there are good reasons
for your line of thinking.

oh? Like all the other hundreds of modules out there? mod_perl? mod_python?
Sorry, that's not an argument.
