Don't think that's a smart way to move right now because
a) We simply don't have resources (community) for that.

However at least part of the native connector could in the
future go somewhere else (commons probably). I'm trying
to create one or two commons projects that would allow
more easier java/native integration, and if someone
creates a workable MINA based connector, native is
already in there.

JK is different, because we still don't know which
way to go in the future. If we came up with something
bright and shiny like JK3, and create enough community
we could ask for a TLP status and move the 1.2 native
code to that new project, leaving tomcat to what it
essentially is (servlet container)
