Actually, Chuck has an aversion to 3rd-party-packaged versions of Tomcat
because they almost always have configuration files strewn all over the
filesystem, tricks added so that you can just "drop-in" web applications
in some "standard" place, etc.

Most of the questions we field have to do with TC configuration. If our
tips are invalid (because we don't know where the Linux flavor of the
week decides to put its configuration files), then we look like jerks.
It's easier to say "if you want help from us, use our product, not
someone else's".

I wholeheartedly agree.

I also think that TC package managers from those Linux distributors
should lurk this list, and see the configuration problems that all these
folks have due to their hackery, and try to make their packages better.
