------- Additional Comments From yoavs@computer.org  2005-11-23 23:07 -------
Mmmm.. The Servlet Spec already says all URLs passed to sendRedirect should
first be passed to encodeRedirectURL.  That method, in Tomcat, calls
org.apache.catalina.connector.Response#isEncodeable, which in doIsEncodeable
tries to construct a URL and returns false if there's a MalformedURLException. 
In theory we could do something with this MalformedURLException, but the Servlet
Spec API for encodeRedirectURL doesn't allow for declared exceptions, so it
would have to be a runtime exception, which seems like an ugly surprise for our
users.

I'll stew about this a bit more as time permits, but alternative ideas welcome...
