I gladly will (or have done), in fact I've rewritten mod_webapp which
resolves the common complains:

1) How can I get Apache to serve static content and Tomcat dynamic content
2) 404 Apache errors
3) Using mod_rewrite and other Apache rewriting mechanisms

I take it you're no longer interested in supporting/developing this
connector, I really don't mind taking over this
responsibility since I could really do with getting these patches tested.
Other things I've nearly resolved
are Windows compatibility and the mod_ssl issue. Let me know what your
thoughts are.
