The final choice will be up to the TOMCAT-DEV committers when presented
with the final release candidate to be voted on.

I can appreciate your concerns about the webapp connector and the service
code.  However, there are undoubtedly also many users who do *not* need
these two features, but need a stable implementation of the new specs.  Is
it fair to delay the entire release for these two featuers -- especially
when other alternatives are available (i.e. you can use mod_jk with Tomcat
4, and there are many "NT Service" gadgets for Java applications)?

It will be an interesting discussion to see how this plays out.
