I did not see this issue addressed so far (maybe it's more an issue for the server
implementation itself), but I would like to see a mechanism where incremental changes to the
configuration information, such as adding a new Directory Path or changing an existing
Maintainer (in the terminology of the Appendix example) are "absorbed" in to the running
server without requiring a complete restart.  This may require architectural support within
the configuration data management module itself (as well as the API), to broadcast events
changes occur.

It should also go without saying that the results of this should be useful in configuring
Tomcat components, not just the HTTP server :-).
