That's interesting that Resin constrains you to a single CPU (but up to
4 cores). I didn't know that Java code could impose that requirement.
Perhaps they play some games at the native level. Sounds like Oracle's
old pricing models. :(

I wouldn't be surprised if you /did/ upgrade to latest version of the
the Pro Edition if your url-patterns didn't fail there, too. The spec
has been tightened around v2.5 (that would be Tomcat 5.5/6) which was
quite a long time ago, now.

I don't think you need a full fork just to add this capability, though
it might not be as simple as extending a class or two and setting a
configuration option. In Tomcat 7.0.x, everything starts in
