Mhh, okay, sad to hear.

The basic idea was to provide an ErrorReportValve that always responds with an JSON, given
the use case that tomcat is sometimes used purely as an HTTP JSON based API server, aka. REST,
this Valve would always return an JSON object and not suddenly an HTML page if for any reason
something goes horrible wrong.

It would be a nice to have for tomcat to provide an out of the box support for this use case.

But yes the format of the JSON is hard to define generally, above RFC was one of the first
search results :-)
