IIRC, Pid did a bunch of work toward that end and it was ultimately
vetoed but did result in an update of the documentation that actually
ships with Tomcat.

Does anyone have any specific parameters within which such a website

giving us a nice new web design and then have it not accepted for one
reason or another: it's not exactly encouraging when a community rejects
well-spent time.
