Grrrrr. You are right. A quick inspection of our code shows, that in
fact: if the JkLogLevel directive is being used and it can not map the
value to a log level, it will use info. If one does not use any
JkLogLevel, then the code really looks like we fall through to debug.
Bad. I'll double check and correct defaults to INFO.

Again you are right. We log the request before we change the status
code. Not good. I'll try to improve this.

Why do you expect a 404 in case Tomcat is down? If the request matches
mod_jk JkMount config, it should try to send to tomcat and the result
would be some 50X?
