Both generating an apache config file on startup and my mod_jk change
which auto mounts context's make the assumption that the Tomcat
webapps directory is available to the web server.  This may not be
the case for instances of Tomcat on a remote system.

It would be best if information about what contexts are configured,
which of the configured contexts are available, and the request URI's
to map to Tomcat was pushed from Tomcat to Apache via the network (channel ?).

There would still be a need for JkAutoAlias for those who want apache
to server static content for a web app which is available via the fs.
