            if you have Apache forwarding SSL requests to a Tomcat that doesn't
            have JSSE installed.

            used to create the socket factory, such as "rootfile" (or
            "keystoreType" for JSSE), is now settable on the Http10Connector

            NSConfig were improved for the case when the forwardAll attribute
            is false. Primarily, a servlet mapping like "/foo/*" now generates
            a mod_jk mapping for "/foo" as well as "/foo/*" to better match
            the servlet spec.

            the PrintWriter so the output doesn't just go to a buffer.  Since
            this logger is replaced a new logger set by the LogSetter module,
            its reduction in efficiency won't affect normal operation.

            configurable and the Admin app internal test page, test.jsp, has
            been updated to make use of this.  With appropriate input settings,
            the tests can be run against Tomcat standalone, Apache, IIS, and
            Netscape (v4.1) without any failures.

            ErrorHandler modules were updated to take advantage of them.  In
            addition, useAcceptLanguage and useCharset attributes were added
            to the StaticInterceptor module to allow configuration of how
            the locale and character set encoding of the directory listings
            are derived.

            default is -1, which disables the delay.  If set > 0, a
            Thread.sleep(<delay>) is executed prior to reading and discarding
            unread input and closing the socket.  This is intended to
            help diagnose problems resulting from unread input that
            arrives during the closing of the socket.
