So soon after such a major release it seems foolhardy to bring this up, but Phillipe's post
seems to have opened a can of worms....

Are there any plans to do anything about JSR-115?  As it's part of the J2EE 1.4 spec, I would
think that for a compliant appserver to embed Tomcat (any others besides JBoss??), Tomcat
would need to comply.  I bring this up because if there is consideration of API changes to
deal w/ the Servlet 2.4 authorization handling, it might be a good time to look into it. 
I'd be happy to help in such an effort if there is any interest.
