perhaps now is the time to do some rethinking of where the connectors for
each serlvet container live.

today, in j-t-c, there is the framework (for lack of a better word) for
connectors plus the individual connectors or adapters for tomcat 3 and
tomcat 4.

personally, i think it would be better to have the individual
connectors/adapters live with the servlet container itself.  i.e. put the
ajp13 connector for tomcat 4 in the jakarta-tomcat-4.0 source tree.  this
way, j-t-c can build without having dependencies on any servlet containers,
and servlet containers that want to provide connectors that make use of
j-t-c can (optionally) depend on j-t-c.

just my $0.02.
