I haven't personally used this, but I've heard other people say that they have it

I will look into this issue.

I agree it should be documented.  But it's not going to be documented by me.

I've already spent the large majority of the last two weeks picking up the pieces on
critical bug fixes for 3.2, and there are not enough cycles to worry about docs as

There are 34 committers on Tomcat (including Glenn, hint hint :-), of which probably
half are still at least peripherally involved with the project.  Anyone who wants to
is welcome to commit documentation updates for 3.2 (in the "tomcat_32" branch), or I'd
be happy to commit updates for any non-committers that want to contribute them.
