As of last (long) weekend, it is included in Tomcat 5.  But before people
get confused, it isn't a true rd.forward.  It works more like an
Apache/httpd rewrite.

When is still an open question (patches are always welcome :).  The
configuration option is 'processWelcomeResources' on the Connector element
('true' means forward, 'false' is the old TC 4.x behavior:  The current
default is 'true').

My limited understanding of this is that, as a JCP member, Apache can't have
a 'release' version before the Servlet-2.4 & JSP-2.0 Specs go final (but
IANAL).  This means that anyone that actually knows the answer is under an
NDA, so they can't tell you.
