Tribes is generic, just a communication component. Can be used for 
anything. And if there are changes needed we can make them.
What you are developing right now, looking at the code, you may be 
reinventing a lot of code that already exists.
What is Tomcat specific is the org.apache.catalina.ha package that sits 
on top of Tribes.

what is the httpd part right now, is it in trunk?
however, since all you need is communicate data back and forth, you 
could make it work with any comm layer underneath, instead of writing 
one from scratch.
