The 'product' of tomcat-dev is a _community_, not a servlet container. 

And I will -1 any Tomcat 5 proposal that doesn't address this problem
and is acceptable to both 3.x and 4.x people.

It can be either a merge of 3.x with 4.x, or it can start from scratch
with a list of requirements and proposals ( like Xerces 2 or Axis ),
discussed one by one and then implemented by everyone.  I hope 
we'll not end with an ant2 model, with 2-3 different competing 
'proposals' ( all with cat-derived names, but little else in common ).

The work in j-t-c and jasper is a good start. And if Tomcat 5 will have 
both valves and interceptors - but a single community behind it - then
it'll be a success.
