+
+* Implement maxHeaderCount attribute on HTTP Connectors.
+  It is equivalent of LimitRequestFields directive of Apache HTTPD
+  See r1356239 in Tomcat 6.
+
+  Notes:
+  1. Implemented for HTTP protocol only. (MimeHeaders.setLimit() is called
+  by HTTP protocol processors only).
+
+  I suppose that users of AJP can leverage the LimitRequestFields directive
+  in Apache HTTPD server.
+
+  2. The feature is manageable through JMX on the ProtocolHandler MBean.
+
+  Unlike later Tomcat versions, I did not add setter/getter methods to
+  Connector class and did not expose the property on Connector MBean.
+
+  Note that Catalina MBeans are not visible in Tomcat 5.5 by default.
+  See r1356696 for instructions.
+
+  3. To test the feature one can use
+    http://localhost:8080/servlets-examples/servlet/RequestHeaderExample
+
+  Refreshing the page in Firefox changes the number of headers in incoming request
+  (+= 'cache-control' for F5, += 'pragma=no-cache' for Ctrl+F5 refresh).
