SVN diff against current Tomcat 7 branch

When configuring mail sessions via JNDI and the Resource element, there is no
mention of a password attribute. This attribute is useful if you wish Tomcat to
manage the remote connection. One such use case is where the source code to the
web application is not available, but requires authenticated connection to an
external mail server.

Tomcat has this capability in the default
org.apache.naming.factory.MailSessionFactory class, but it's not documented.

The proposed patch amends the jndi-howto document with this information.
