Don't ever, ever, ever set CLASSPATH for Tomcat; you will confound the classloader design
and end up with all sorts of ClassNotFoundExceptions.  It will likely also be impossible to
reload webapps without restarting the entire server.

The servlet spec states that jars are to be placed in WEB-INF/lib, so that's what Tomcat implements;
if the developer wants something beyond that, a custom classloader is what's needed.
