The page author is us, index.jsp is shipped with tomcat, and so is the
default servlet.
My understanding is that the http1.1 spec requires this method to be
implemented in a particular way - and tomcat code doesn't. Not sure
what users@ could do about it, except from replacing the default

For JSPs - IMO the JSP spec or our implementation is badly broken in
this aspect, the fact is that no jsp in existence deals works
correctly ( according to HTTP spec ).
 I don't thing it matters that this is a problem with the lazy users
or tomcat developers who forget to implement it. The spec could
require a default implementation, or require users to implement it if
running in a http11 server.
