Just a word of caution. The EG is far from agreed on the best way to do
the non-blocking API at the moment. As with happened with the 3.0 async
API, a complete re-write could still happen.

The EL EG has added a whole bunch of features. On the plus side the
updated jjt file is included in the spec that should speed things up a
fair bit.

I haven't heard anything in terms of JSP updates. I can't imagine there
will be much there.

My current focus on Tomcat 8 is re-factoring the resources to remove all
the JNDI stuff. After that, I'll probably look at the HTTP upgrade bit.
