Ok, I don't think it'll be ready next week - you can use it today, it took
10 minutes to write and test :-)

You can set all the options that jasper knows - compile the interceptor (
you need tomcat jars in CLASSPATH ), add it to CLASSPATH, and then 
add in your server.xml ( after WebXmlReader ):

( run javadoc and read all other options you can set ).
It should work with any tomcat 3.2 - in 3.3 there is already one 
( JspInterceptor ) that does a much better integration ( and is faster
than the servlet used in 3.2 ).
