No, it follows the style of the other server.xml declarations instead:
* The element name is capitalized.
* The "className" attribute is used to identify which class should be
* Any other attribute names are matched up against your property setters
  and they are called (with type conversions for Java native types).

So, if your listener has a "setDebug(int debug)" method, you can set the
listener and configure the debug level like this:

  <Connector ...>
    <Listener className="my.package.class" debug="0"/>

An arbitrary number of properties can be set in this way.

Yes, server/lib is the right place if your class is in a JAR
file.  Unpacked classes can be placed in server/classes (which is not
created by default, but is added to the class loader if found).
