If it is possible under Apache/Linux, it's a bad idea.

On Unix systems, Apache runs many copies of itself.  If you
configured Tomcat to run in-process, you would get many complete
copies of Tomcat, which is a pretty expensive proposition.

The redirect overhead shouldn't be that bad, and will definitely
be much faster than forcing the system to swap many JVM copies.

Apache 2.0 is supposed to support multi-threading under Unix,
which might make this possible.  (Of course, multi-threading is
less robust than multi-process, so if you really need Apache+Tomcat,
you might be better off sticking with the non in-process arrangement
