I really need these things fixed and I really don't have time to try to 
do it myself. I'm not sure what other recourse I could have other than 
trying to drum up support from other users. I'm guessing that very few 
people are doing large scale virtual hosting with Tomcat, so this might 
not work.

I understand how this works... Milestone payments would be made on 
commit, and release of a stable version incorporating the feature.

I'm hoping that since they are genuine defects (IOW, they haven't yet 
been rejected as INVALID) that a patch of good quality would be accepted.
