The way it works - the connector ( or protocol handler ) creates the 
socket, using plain, jsse, pureTLS. And Remy is saying that some othe 
valves are calling getSocket() and use the socket/JSSE to  extract info ( 
I assume using JSSE specific code). 

That is going to fail if PureTLS or Ajp are used.

But I don't think we can do anything about it - the method must be 
deprecated and the code that calls it must be changed to call the right 
methods ( req.getAttribute() or similar ).

BTW, with the new protocol handler - I still haven't implemented the 
ActionCode to support req.getAttribute. I need a way to pass information 
up ( all existing ActionCode are passing info from connector to protocol,
and I need a way to return info ).

After Remy reviews the o.a.t.util.handler.TcHandlerContext, I plan to 
use the context as a second param in the ActionHook - and use notes to 
pass/return all informations we need.
