As a lurker on this list I can give myself and everyone I've ever worked 
with as concrete examples of some people that have given up on 4.1+ 
tomcat because of JK configuration.

I can count at least 12 projects I have worked on, or am working on, 
that are still on Tomcat 4.0.6 with mod_webapp because we could never 
get JK to do what we wanted.  That is, mount this webapp at that URI in 
one line and be done with it.  All the other JK features are great but 
90% of the configurations are going to be like the one I just described 
and no one can figure out how to do it.

I love what you guys are doing.  I think you should strive to make the 
most common configuration as simple as mod_webapp and allow people to 
add complexity if their needs require it.
