It seems to work for most usages.  As Mark pointed out, each <Host> or <Context>
should have separate work directories to avoid conflicts with temp files, JSPs, etc.

That will make no difference, since the underlying location is the same for all.

It's not clear to me that the OP wants separate instances of one webapp (one per host), or
if he wants one instance of one webapp that services all hosts.  We really need that clarified
before any further suggestions can be made.
