Well, I may be close to "zero" - as I think I undertand jk a bit. But it's
certain the current jk is the result of many excelent contributors.

AFAIK mod_jk is probably the  only piece of tomcat where development
continued after the original  developer left, and the component of tomcat
with the _largest_ number  of contributors. By far.

It's also ( AFAIK ) a piece of tomcat where the design happened on
tomcat-dev, where most changes are reviewed and discussed.
