I actually understood the orginal mail, it's not that bad 
( i.e. I've written worse messages :-)

+1

The goal is to have tomcat serve dynamic content and apache static
content, respecting as strictly as possible the web.xml semantic.

Anything that helps that goal is good.

However, I would like to see this in jk2 - JkMount is going
to be deprecated and there is the issue of supporting multiple
servers ( it won't be trivial to fix iis/nes in jk1.2 to support
the same thing ). Plus jk1.2 is stable and close to a release.
