The official rules for J2EE spec compliance (which includes Servlet and
JSP) go into quite a bit of detail about what containers can and cannot
do.  Having configuration settings that allow the container to break the
rules (which would be true if we added this switch to Tomcat, since it
doesn't support any alternative way to provide cookie-less sessions) are
on the official no-no list.

I don't know whether WebLogic meets this requirement or not ... but
Tomcat's code has *my* name on a lot of the code commits :-).
