Since at least Leon reported back he took the name as a suggestion to
include classpath customization in there and I can imagine there are
others as well for whom we would break their installation when
upgrading, I suggest we postpone renaming to TC 8. That might be the
time for a bigger script refactoring using shell and bat functions to
keep the catalina and tool-wrapper scripts in sync more easily.
