1. You can add whitespace around ',' and '=' for better readability.
(I do not remember whether 7.0.27 allows it, but 7.0.30 should allow
whitespace there).

2. It is possible to define a system property (via -D in the options

3. Having 200 aliases means that Tomcat would have to try 200
different prefixes for each resource lookup. Maybe it would not be
noticeable (compared to the other time spent in delivering a
response), but it still seems like a waste of time.
