Okay, if you feel strongly about not working with the Tomcat 4.x code
base. This revolution branch would, however, not change the decision
to use the Tomcat 4.x code base for Servlet 2.3/JSP 1.2. The earliest
it could be considered would be for the next version of the specs.

I've noticed ;-) I'm okay with another revolution branch, as long as we're
clear about which spec versions Tomcat 3.x and Tomcat 4.x supports.

Sometimes evolution just doesn't work ;-) Anyway, if this makes everyone
happy, I'm all for it.
