I guess more or less the only reason why TC4 hasn't been released as final
is because the Servlet/Jsp spec's aren't final so when those get final I'll
guess that we'll start working towards a "real" TC4 release. That release
would then be the current Tomcat release and thus making TC < 4 more or
less obsolete. Sure, user's won't be switching over immediately but I guess
what Craig is saying is that TC3.x should only live in maintenance mode
until a stable version of TC4 is released and thus making enhancements
to the TC3.x branches a waste of time.

Yes, but should we really focus on adding stuff/enhancements to the TC3.x branches?
