... But you can put it back by modifying catalina.{bat,sh} depending on
platform, which will be more robust than relying on a classloader.  If
you have a constraint that you're *also* not allowed to touch the Tomcat
startup files, then I would feed back that the combination of these
constraints will make any eventual solution *less* robust rather than
the intention behind the constraints of making more robust systems.
