I would strongly vote for turning the auto-config back on by default for the
following reasons (other than the fact that I explicity turned it back on
when Keith fixed the ApacheConfig class):

 1) This is how 3.2 worked, and how the docs specify that 3.3 works.

 2) Configuration of mod_jk is notoriously complicated.  Giving people the
auto generated file is a big, big win.

 3) For the people who run it in standalone, we can provide a comment in the
file telling them to "comment out the below".   That way it would work out
of the box for both types (standalone + behind Apache), and be very easy for
people to tune to their needs.

Since the syntax has changed (and I've never been a server.xml master), I'm
not sure where the AutoConfig stuff would go now.
