In addition to libservlet2.5-java, I think we should have some sense of
how tomcat6 and tomcat7 users will be affected by having tomcat8-only
available in jessie.  That is, are there incompatibilities or changes in
behavior people need to be aware of?  Do we need to provide a migration
script of some sort?  We already know about the username differences -
are there others?

I don't like to merely pose the questions, but am not regularly running
tomcat in production anymore, and so don't have ready answers. I don't
want users to feel like they're stranded with their existing tomcat6/7
