Another tactic is to give up, and return an error code of some sort in 
Tomcat if the URL contains a path parameter (since they are not part of 
the path, are not handled properly, and have no useful usage at the moment).

The latest RFC (3986) gives an interesting example of usage: For 
example, one URI producer might use a segment such as "name;v=1.1" to 
indicate a reference to version 1.1 of "name".

Personally, I dislike the "optimized" mappings, like *.jsp, that in the 
end make the webapp non portable and full of security holes. I think 
full webapp mappings are preferable (and for static resources that 
"need" to be served by Apache, it still seems possible to me to use 
relative URLs to them - as if they were in a separate webapp).
