except the fact that you could upgrade 5.5.25 (existing tomcat release) 
with the tcnative 1.1.12 (from the new tomcat release)
so if it is not a product, how come it's versioned and tagged 
separately, and not just tagged with Tomcat's tag like the jsp engine or 
the nio connector.

currently we require Win as the build environment (I think it had to do 
with NSIS installer or something like that)
the tcnative, is a source tarball, right? so could we make it buildable 
with ANT?

I'd be ok with putting it as part of the TC build itself if we don't 
want it as a separate product.
