Maybe the best response to this would be to update the docs and say
"tomcat IIS 6 is not supported, plese contact microsoft and ask them to 
do it". They have plenty of developers and money - they could send a 
check to Andy and Henri, or do it themself :-)

It's better then having people struggle with mod_jk config and feeling 
it's tomcat developer's job to support IIS.
