I am waiting for 7.0.24.

Okay, I will byte.

Practical:  This was my sandbox config file.  I switch between 6 
different applications.  I do this by switching server.xml files when I 
switch projects.  This keeps things minimal (not starting up 6 
connection pools), its easier to switch one file, and it makes restarts 

Opinion:  I hate over decomposition and I preferred the days when tomcat 
was only configured with server.xml.  Tomcat's configuration is not that 
complicated, do we really need a bunch of configuration files.  Its bad 
when one thing becomes two, and hence good when two things become one. 
I bet your also in the micro kernel camp.  I know lots of people 
clamored for being able to configure the connection pool in there war 
file.  I don't know why anyone would do this, our WAR file runs in any 
environment where the jndi name is present.  They have to build separate 
WAR files for each environment.  Basicly I think the context.xml is 
stupid.  If it matters so much change the document definition.
