For Tomcat 5.5.20, since the admin webapp is not part of the binary
download (don't recall it being in there). We added a use flag to
control if the admin app was built/installed.

I can't say it's been highly used. I know we did have requests from
those not wanting the admin app. Which really was the reason for the
admin USE flag. Since by default we were building and installing the
admin web app. Users wanted a choice.

Me personally I have not used it in years and never did extensively. I
found it took more time than just editing the files directly. Could be
just personal preference or habit. I just deleted the sucker after
install. ;)

These days it seems the manager apps get more use than the admin. No
complaints here if the admin is no longer available. I will be happy to
say to all Gentoo users that upstream does not provide or ship an admin
webapp any more, so there is not one for/with 6.0.x.
