Well memory is not the only point, faster start and less class to be
loaded is also very important for me. In my company we're still using
Tomcat 3.3.2 on our production servers (iSeries) since they are quite
fast to start and that's very important when you have at the same time
not less than 20 or 25 instances of Tomcat starting in its own JVM
(one tomcat for a customer since the applications hosted have
differents life cycle and constraint).

One point important with MX on a production system. It's fun to have
it when you're a developper but when you have to explain each entries
to the production teams it turn to be a nightmare :)
