I'm still confused. Back in JServ days, we were very resistant to adding
things to the container that were outside of the scope of the Servlet
Spec...for example, support for servlet chaining because we wanted to
maintain our stance as a supporter of the servlet spec. I guess that this
has changed now. Oh well.
