Just a note to Dave: using this mapping might couple your webapp to
Tomcat by relying on a global-mapping with a servlet called "default". I
don't think that's in the spec, so you might want to put a comment in
your web.xml pointing out that the mapping might be Tomcat-specific.
You'll save yourself (or someone else) a lot of headache in the future
with that simple comment.
