I don't think that anybody is proposing bundling jss34.jar with Tomcat.  It
would be an optional dependency much like PureTLS is now.  Anybody that
wanted to use it would have to download it from mozilla.org and install it.
And as Remy pointed out, Christine would have to agree to donate her code to
the ASF, at which point it would be licensed under ASFL.

My reading of MPL-1.1 (again IANAL) is that:
  import org.mozilla.some.package.SomeClass;

isn't viral, so that there isn't any problem with having
o.a.t.u.net.jss.JSSServerSocketFactory with an ASF license.
