I thought that this is what we are discussing right now. :-) I'm +1 on doing
API surgery at this point...especially given that you are doing development
towards a release of Tomcat 4.x based on a Servlet API version that isn't
release either. :-) What if the Servlet API changes tomorrow? That would be
more API surgery as well IMHO. Also, given that this would be surgery
towards making things more compatible with the Servlet API, I think that it
is more than justified. :-)
