Yeah, that's the crux of it I suppose. Do you know how much of tomcat
assumes single thread request / response? After the request pops out of
tomcat (via axis), the processing on our side is already asyncronous:
	- Receive request
	- Pass request on for asyncronous processing
	- Internal request processing completes
	- Unblock tomcat thread, allowing response to be handled back
through axis and tomcat

I appreciate that dealing with axis to handle asyncronous responses is
out of the scope of this list, but what about tomcat?
Would much need to be changed to remove the assumption that everything
has been done when servicing the servlet returns? I.e: If I can make my
web-apps behave asyncronously, would a whole load need to be done within
tomcat to support this?

Many thanks,
