Feedback provided in the GSOC app and repeated below. Feel free to discuss your
ideas regarding these questions on the dev list.


Good first draft. There are a couple of areas where I would like to see a little
more information:

   1. There are many more valves than the 6 you listed.
   2. The filter requires a ServletContext at initialisation. How might you
handle this for a filter defined at the Engine/Host level?
   3. Authentication will require access to Tomcat internals. Is a filter the
right solution for these valves? What might a better approach be? What about JSR
