I actually thought that TC3.3 was refactored for performance, while TC4
was made for .. overviewability.. or whatever. TC4 is very "rigid", while
TC3.3 is using straighter, faster lines of control.

TC5 is supposed to take the good-shit from both TC3.3 and TC4 and make
"the very best" Servlet Container in the universe.

.. is my understanding.
