I am observing these mod_jk issues quite some time lurking on
tomcat-dev and from a user POV I'd really appreciate a fork of
mod_jk into 1.2 stable and 1.3 (or whatsoever) unstable.

During 1.2 development after 1.2.5 serious changes have been added
that a) broke compabilty and b) added new features that introduced
a lot of new issues and bugs.

Don't take me wrong, mod_jk is a great peace of software and the
new features are really good in concept, but IMHO I would not consider
any mod_jk release after 1.2.6 stable.

Mladen has done a great Job in improving mod_jk, but I think that this
sort of changes require a new branch.

And finally another issue about mod_jk ... lack of dokumentation.

I think I have seen the local_worker issue several times on the dev
list, and I am not watching the user list. Wouldn't it be easier to
document the newer redirect features than answering tons of mails
from users that ask for it.

I am neither a contirbutor, nor a developer nor a member of asf,
so my opinion may not weight much...
