It's as real world as any other microcontainer spec that has shown up,
and will show up afterwards. Thinking back about it, it was a really bad
decision to not use Avalon way back then when we had a chance.

I think it's a great domain names parking study. Don't hesitate to
provide evidence that Netcraft means anything for the servlet container
market (or even for httpd - see, it's falling really fast, any
conclusion based on that ? - on the webserver market as whole, as it
seems to measure what virtual hosters are using, which is nice to know,
but that's about it).

I don't know if you noticed, but I have not really been participating in
Tomcat's trunk development for months, and am only dealing with Tomcat
6.0. In trunk or any other future developments, at the moment my plan is
only to comment (pretty much like Costin does).

So fear not, your biggest problem is now gone, and you can now start
contributing :)
