Again: tomcat3.3 _doesn't_ require all modules to support
JDK1.1 ! The only requirement is to have the basic 
functionality ( of a servlet container ) working on JDK1.1,
and we already have that.

There are quite a few optional modules in 3.3 that require
1.2 - sandbox, thread loader, etc. As long as the 
core is JDK1.1 compatible, things are going to be ok.

Well, we already have 4 HTTP/1.1 connectors for 3.3 :-) 
But I agree it would be good if Coyote would share more with
jk - right now they use the low level stuff, but it would
be trivial to integrate them a bit more and share the
same connector ( the Request impl. - which will require 
quite a bit of work to optimize for 4.x ).
