that probably depends on who you ask ;-)

jakarta-tomcat-connectors (jtc) is a new module where connectors like
ajp, warp/webapp, etc. should live.  the idea is that the core parts of
connectors should be container-agnostic.  only the request/response
adapters should know about containers.

ajp/jk will not be "included" in tc4, but it will support tc4 -- there
will be (is) an ajp13 connector for tc 4 (it's is a work in progress). 
going forward, ajp connectors for tc 3, tc 4, and maybe other containers
will live in jtc.

warp/webapp will not replace ajp/jk, but it will give you another
choice.  you'll be free to make the decision yourself as to what
connector you want to use.
