Actually, the Tomcat webapp deployer is not currently multi-threaded,
but there's no reason it couldn't be in the future.  The servlet spec
does not define a loading order, since by definition, all webapps are
supposed to be independent.

As others have pointed out, if you need something above and beyond
spec-defined behavior, you have to provide it yourself.  Tomcat tries to
adhere to the letter of the spec; any additional behaviors results in
apps being less portable across containers.
