Partially lack of interest, partially because it was based on the same
pre-Coyote code as code as the older BIO connector
org.apache.jk.server.JkCoyoteHandlerwhich which was also dropped and
partially because I was looking for any excuse to make the code base
smaller, more consistent and easier to maintain. I still have going
through the 7.0.x code and purging anything that is no longer used on my
to-do list (maybe once I figure out what on earth is causing bug 49884).
The obvious stuff has gone but I suspect there is a lot more.

There is a Coyote replacement for BIO: org.apache.coyote.ajp.AjpProtocol
but not for NIO.

Personally I have no urge to write another connector but the nice thing
about the ASF is if that is an itch someone wants to scratch then they
are free to do so.
