Sounds good.

On a related note, our practice with mod_jk is to route only *.jsp, 
/servlet/*, and a few other URL patterns to Tomcat and let Apache handle 
everything else.  We also want to support load balancing with sticky 
sessions, of course.

That combination is pretty easy and straightforward with mod_jk.  It has 
been *baffling* with mod_proxy_ajp.  Perhaps we just haven't spent long 
enough on mod_rewrite, etc, but so far we're not getting anywhere...
