I didn't say the no-filesystem container use-case pre-empts the one with
filesystem.  So specious is not a good word.  But then again, I don't
really care if you think it's specious or not, as I said, this is
Spec-mandated and not Tomcat's call to make.  Accordingly, any
complaints of the "specious" and other type should be directed to the
Servlet Expert Group.
