nick, Why does your Tomcat 4.1.12 use JK2

Nick, I've been using the old Tomcat 4.0.3 build for quite some time on all of my servers. I finally got around to setting up a test server to play with your latest build from last October (4.1.12).

I noticed that by default it is trying to use the JK2/Coyote connector, which renders the way you add the JKMounts in the httpd.conf useless. JK2/Coyote was designed for Apache 2.x, not 1.3.x and isn't guaranteed to be compatible. Now I see why so many people were complaining about that build of yours.

Given that it's been almost 4 months, I think it's time for a new build (might as well use 4.1.18) that propelry configures the JK connector (not JK2) so that things once again (like they did in 4.0.3) work properly.
