That is fine as long as you build and run on a 1.4+ JDK but when checking for 
1.3 compatibility the Coyote/HTTP connector fails. The root cause is the use 
of the 1.4 regexp API in o.a.coyote.http11.Http11Processor 

Possible solutions:
1. Use the 5.0 branch
2. Revert the patch and go back to using jakarta-regexp
3. Introduce an o.a.coyote.http11.tomcat4 package and place a copy of 
Http11Processor in it that uses jakarta-regexp.

1. Would mean an awful lot of porting.
2. Quick but adds an unnecessary library to TC5 and leaves TC5 using two 
different regexp libs
3. Relatively quick but would need some build.xml tweaking for TC5

Unless anyone has a better idea, I'll crack on with 3 over the weekend.

On the Subversion front, I have TC4 building with jakarta-tomcat-connectors 
HEAD and will commit it once I have finished testing the various connector and 
JVM combinations (I don't plan to provide APR support in TC4). Once I have got 
this out of the way, I'll work with Henri on the test Watchdog migration.
