Subject Re: New coyote branch

Craig summed it up well in his e-mail. The attribute change listeners 
are explicitly required by the proposed servlet 2.4 spec. I need to 
modify the ServletRequest instance which happens to be present in Coyote.

Both Costin and Remy brought up issues related to as well as good 
solutions to branching. I like Remy's idea of creating a Tomcat 5 
adapter which would be consistent with the Tomcat 3 & 4 adapters.

(The javax.servlet API changes I made to jakarta-servletapi-5 will not 
affect whether Coyote builds or not. These are additions with no 
modification to the existing API's. I submitted a patch for these 
additions a couple of days ago but since there's no implementation you 
won't see any changes to the behavior.)
