I need some clarification.  What will be purpose of the two branches in
jakarta-tomcat-4.0 (the "main" branch and tomcat_40_branch)?  If we're
moving 4.1 development to a new repository then do we still need branches in
the jakarta-tomcat-4.0 repository?

This sounds like a good plan.  My only concern is that we might cause
confusion by naming the repository with 4.0 when this will be used by any
4.x.  Might people be looking for jakarta-servletapi-4.1, etc.?
