Well, we are in total agreement ( with the small observation that it's not
a radical "revolution", it's the current tomcat :-)

( XMLTree is just one of the ways to set up tomcat - even if I don't like
it, it is a valid and accepted solution. Other ways are JNDI,
SimpleStartup, ant-like XmlHelper, deploy package - all are valid in this
architecture, and Avalon will also work with the right adapters, if
someone writes them. ) I think it's the right architecture, and even if it
is not, it doesn't deny any alternative.

It's exactly what I want ( but it seems I'm very,very  bad at
explaining it). Thanks, Craig.
