Will there be such a distinction soon?! At least I feel it's clearly a
needed option! :)

And if so, how impossible would it be to point several tomcats to the same
webapp? E.g. the manager-thingy? Or would I have to copy the webapp into
each tomcat's location? I guess there could be problems with the
generation and compilation of those JSP things.
