This brings up another point... I was under the assumption that if 
Tomcat 4 has been officially released (i.e., stable, as good as it 
gets!), then modwebapp would also be classified the same way?  Is this 
not true?  Should I be putting my effort towards getting mod_jk to work 
with Tomcat 4 instead?  I recently was able to compile modwebapp under 
Solaris 7 but during my testing, it crashed on me. I haven't seen it 
happen since but when it goes into production, I  want to make sure it 
holds up under the load.  Should I not be using modwebapp?
