Some valves in the Catalina pipeline use that.

It probably should be done at the protocol layer, but I can't do that for
compatibility reasons, so I think the socket should be set as a note in the
Request object (as is suggested in the commented out code in the HTTP/1.1
protocol handler).

You mean HttpRequestBase in Catalina ?
This object's implementation is bad, and I wanted to deprecate it to make
that obvious. There's little code duplication overall.
There's also no ugly casts to the XXBase objects in the Catalina pipeline
(everthing uses the interfaces), so it works fine.

I'll do a CoyoteConnector2 for Catalina soon too to see how it works.
Probably tomorrow.
