Well, it is a result of the new threading in the sense that now it is 
possible to not block. If you want to bock there - it is quite easy to 
code this :-)

I think returning 503 is a correct behavior too - it means 'resource 
temporary unavailable, try later' - which is exactly the case. Apache 
should return the same result if it can't connect to tomcat.
