Subject Re: Tomcat-Lite update

I am intrigued by the idea and have similar constraints (kids+job).

My longer term interest in lite was a simpler deployment and moving 
config into scripting and out of xml. (But this was more dream due to 
time requirements)

As an aside, I am wondering if the long term effect to simplification 
will break things like the security manager. And with the capabilities 
we see in VM's today - is it better to just ignore the security manager 
and just tell people to use an isolated VM if they wish to lock things 
down. Is there a good reason to use a security manager today? (This 
might be a survey question for the user list)
