it's probably a waste of time since the only thing using it is the Wiki
Publisher extension, which likely uses just basic features and doesn't
care about performance; it would be better to investigate whether
current JREs (version 6 as baseline) include some equivalent
functionality already to get rid of that external dependency instead
(it's especially annoying since it requires servlet-api.jar to build,
which is why we only reason why we have that silly "tomcat" module).
