  This is partly the same for Tomcat 3.x, but as the new classes in Catalina are  
  more modular and sophisticated I assume such enhancement to be more useful for 
! the new generation of Tomcat.

! Tomcat (all versions) conforms to the standard servlet APIs, and these APIs
! provide no mechanism to ask for all the roles a user has.  Indeed, in some
! security environments, there *is* no single place where this information is
! accumulated, so it would not always be possible to implement such a method.
! 
! You could certainly write a piece of code (installed *inside* Tomcat so that it
! has visibility to the needed classes) that makes this info available for the
! default Realm implementations, but it would be specific to Tomcat and not
! portable to any other container.
