Actually, the main advantage of mod_jk over mod_jserv is the persistent
connection from Apache <-> Tomcat (well, other than the obvious that the TC
4.x line doesn't support mod_jserv :).

The advantages to mod_jk2 over mod_jk are very clear to developers (the code
is much much cleaner).  If you are only using channelSocket, then most of
the improvements don't mean much to end users at the moment (with the
possible exception of RI support in mappings).  You also can use UnixSockets
and (an actually working) JNI channel with mod_jk2 (of course, JNI only
really works with Apache-2/IIS/iPlanet, but some of the developers have
reportedly tried it with Apache-1.3.x -- giving a weird load-balancing
config :).
