Semantics, I guess.  There's one connectors distribution, and it has

Well, I'd say that makes them separate.  Especially since some of them
come with the Tomcat distrib and some of them don't.  That is, there
are two kinds of connectors, those for Tomcat standalone and those for
integrating Tomcat with Apache (or some other web server).  The ones
for Tomcat standalone and the Tomcat side of those for integrating
Tomcat with Apache come with Tomcat, while the Apache side of those
for integrating Tomcat with Apache don't.  They have to be gotten
separately, perhaps via the connectors distribution (which I think
includes all sides of all connectors).
