Right. However, I think JK 1.2.x needs some level of stability. So APR, 
large architectural changes, etc seem bad ideas. Of your list, I think 
documentation (yah !) and the Unix sockets backport would be good (if 
not too complex), but that's about it. Modifications to the Java side is 
something independent.

The new direction is basically making Apache (which has a continued 
overwhelming market share) the preferred native webserver, with the 
others still being supported, but with a limited feature set.

For the long term, if you would want better support for the other 
servers, you can start a 100% APR replacement for JK 1.2 (I think it was 
a bit like your mod_ajp) if you want to.
