Yes... No problems with that... Actually over there it has more visibility
to Peter D. and Geir, who were my "pals" on JSR-096...

I wrote a doc on why JSR-096 sucks, along with an alternative API (which is
what a bunch of us on JSR-096 wanted but the spec lead didn't want to
follow)... Do you want that? It has some more reviews up to date...

(BTW, I don't follow this list much ATM - new job outside of the scope of
Tomcat - so if you have something urgent just CC me as J.F. does :)
