I think more installations use Apache httpd, but I think that's just
because a) they are already using it or b) they think that Apache httpd
provides some kind of speed boost. Pretty much the opposite is true:
adding httpd simply adds unnecessary complexity to a system (if you are
just passing-through requests to Tomcat).

There are plenty of reasons to use Apache httpd in front of Tomcat.
Access to port 80 on UNIX is /not/ one of them.

Stick to jsvc: it doesn't even require any configuration, which is nice :)
