I'm really sorry about that ( the windows flames ).

Stefano, I hate this fight also, but I'll have to use and work with
whatever comes out of this discussion. The current architecture is
flexible enough to allow this model to be used, and people will start
coding using the "configurable" pattern ( which is easier to code and
understand). And if that becomes "de-facto" standard for tomcat I'll also
have to use it, and I really don't believe in it.

I think most arguments I read are rational, and Arkin's proposal ( to make
it possible to use both ) is reasonable enough. The code itself is
important, and we should not force people to use a certain pattern if we
can't reach agreement on it.
