Because optional JMX is going to be too painfull and limit a lot of what 
we can do ( or make it much more complex than it needs to be ).

I'll remove JMX from util - that can be easily avoided. 3.3 and 4.0 
have their own http and ajp connectors.

I agree - but if the cost is making the code too convoluted and use only a 
small subset of JMX - I think it's better to branch.

Registration can be wrapped ( easily ). Notifications and use of 
MBeanRegistration are hard to wrap.

possible to use either branch in any tomcat - if you have JMX, you can
use HEAD with 3.3 or 4.1.
