What does it mean ? 
I saw the 1.5 jmx stuff, but as usual this only works with 1.5 while most
people will keep using 1.3 or 1.4 for few years. I hope we're not falling
into the forced upgrade trap :-)

I agree that tomcat should't reinvent the wheel - but provide some mechanism
for 1.4, maybe similar ( or identical ) with what 1.5 provides. This would
also allow people with 1.3 or 1.4 to enjoy JMX now.
