[1] Isn't it possible for to set the user for the current request in httpd context via mod_jk
? I guess this would be half good, as this info would only be known to httpd during the response
handling, and not before. I guess this would introduce inconsistencies when httpd users expect
that httpd must be aware of the user during a whole (tomcat) session, instead of just the
http responses.

This would imply to make the user info available in the response's headers, right ?

But anyway, if [1] is correct, then it would mean to let httpd be aware of servlet sessions,
which might be a lot more work I guess.
