Cool stuff ;)

I'm away in two weeks, so I'll tag and branch 5.0.27 and TOMCAT_5_0 at the end of next week,
so that you can start working on HEAD two weeks when you're back from vaca.

>- "Fork" commons-digester, to remove what we don't need (many fancy

>   * move processing of context.xml to ContextConfig (at the expense of
