Hi Yves,

I tried both methods, and preferred running two tomcat instances. It
does require modifications to the packaging (I did this under RedHat),
but gives the most flexibility. The decider for me was the ability to
run each tomcat instance as a different user id, and to be able to
completely stop and restart each tomcat without affecting the other.

Cheers, Ben
