For Tomcat 3.2, you would have to modify the code.  I didn't catch the change
early enough in the release cycle, and I judged it too risky to change this back
in 3.2 final, because I did not know what other changes might have also been
made that depended on this.

Note:  Tomcat 4.0 restores the usage of the global configuration file
"conf/web.xml", operating the way that 3.1 did.
