1) case-sensitivity

Most parts of URLs are case-sensitive in general (as stated by the respective
RFCs). Although on the windows platform file system pathes are not, and
therefore URLs pointing to file system objects usually behave case-insensitive,
mod_jk decides about forwarding to backends, whose case-sensitivity is unknown.

So we wont change the default for the Windows platform to case-insensitive. One
might argue, that it would make configuration for the windows platform easier,
if one could choose mappings to be case insensitive (not active by default). For
this we could extent the syntax of uriworkermap.properties resp. JkMount (in the
apache case). If you think that's an important feature, please open a separate
BZ for this feature and people can discuss it.

2) Root-Context mounts and unmounts

I'm thinking about your patch resp. something close to it.
