Implementing SingleThreadedServlet doesn't mean only one thread will be 
running the servlet at a time.  It means only one thread will be running 
a given INSTANCE of the servlet.  So you could still have two threads 
running two different instances of the same servlet.  This will still 
get massively messed up with all the sharing of static variables.

I'll fix this problem, and I'll create a filter that does SSI on any 
output ( so that a JSP page can use SSI, for example ).  I don't have 
any interest in being a maintainer/having commit access, however.

So what's the best way to give back my bug fixes/filter?

Thanks for the response, btw.
