That means we require the release to be built on Windows so we can built 
the installer and on *nix for native. Essentially we need would need to 
build every distribution on two platforms. Whilst it is manageable, that 
strikes me significantly increasing the risk of their being subtle 
differences between the Windows and Linux distributions.

I still don't see why we can't just do a native release in the same way we 
do a mod_jk release. That wouldn't stop us bundling a particular native 
release with a Tomcat release and it allows users to easily update the 
native library if there are any serious bugs. It would mean there is a 
greater requirement to keep the interface stable but I don't see that as a 
major issue.
