I don't think there is anything to debate about that. 

All we know is that we have a release plan for a 3.3 release, a plan for a
4.0 release using a different code base - and commiters will decide what
code base will be used for 5.0 ( it may be a completely different one -
who knows ? ).

Anyone is free to try new ideas - and to ignore existing code and reinvent
the weels. And anyone is free to choose the codebase he thing has the best
chances for long-term and work on it. 

But tomcat-dev must decide what is used in a certain release - and
making mod_webapp the "default" for 4.0 is not fair. When you feel it's
ready we can of course vote on it - and if indeed it's better I would be
happy to use it in 3.x also. I believe mod_jk has more chances - so that's
where I'll put my free development time ( if I find any :-).
