Just for discussion's sake, I've used Instant ASP! ('!' theirs, not mine)
from Halcyon Software.  It's a servlet engine/container that supports
ASP/VBScript.  The reason I'm mentioning it is because it adds only two
configuration directives to httpd.conf - pointers to two different
properties files, neither of which you have to edit by hand.  There's an
applet-based configuration mechanism that rox0rs.  Lets you setup different
contexts from tabbed dialogs, etc.  I have to say, "hella cool".

Anyways, the point is that you don't have to touch a single configuration
file by hand =)  I wonder how important "window dressing" things like this
are in pushing Tomcat?
