Actually, that's not really true anymore.  The current Tomcat without
APR is almost as fast as httpd for delivering non-SSL static content,
and with APR it's pretty much the same for both non-SSL and SSL traffic
(since it's the same code).  There are reasons to use httpd in front of
Tomcat, but delivering static content isn't one of them.
