Your "don't ask me where" and "wtf" comments seem to conflict with your "looks quite sane
to me" statement...

The Debian file scattering approach makes it extremely difficult for anyone not running that
Debian level and that specific Debian repackaged version of Tomcat to provide anything other
than general advice.  When the repackagers start to muck around in server.xml changing defaults
(some of them do), it gets even worse.

Ergo, if you want advice from the Tomcat users mailing list, it's best to use a standard Tomcat;
otherwise, you will likely need help from a platform-specific forum.
