	It's always going to be the case that the Avalon and Tomcat releases 
don't sync up perfectly.  How would you feel about making any Tomcat 
changes necessary to support the Avalon patch, but maintaining the 
Avalon block itself outside of the main Tomcat 4.0 module?  That way the 
Avalon support could be updated independently for new releases of Avalon 
*or* Tomcat.
