IMHO you should commit - even if it doesn't work ( or brakes the 
builds :-).

Sure - it's not exclusive. 

What I'm saying is that we should try to minimize the the ammount of user
interaction, if a certain info is available then use it. 

In this case - we have code to read the registry, and in some cases
we may find the location of tomcat and apache (for mod_jk _ from the 
service key. It doesn't cost too much to do the test. 

If not found - we can use other means, like a jk-specific key. What I 
would like to do is implement jk_config interface for the registry,
and expose it from both jk and java.

You're the expert :-)

After you commit the jk_service_isapi, I don't want to duplicate
