Hi Holger,

Thank you for coordinating this effort.  I'm not aware of any reason why
the squeeze-lts packaging/version of tomcat6 wouldn't also be
appropriate for wheezy.

An updated tomcat-native package should also be part of the update;
building 1.1.31-1 from testing/unstable on wheezy fine.  (I just built
both of these, the squeeze-lts tomcat6 + tomcat-native 1.1.31-1 on a
wheezy chroot and ran them without any issue.)

The Java Team is cc:d on this thread.  Emmanuel has been in much closer
contact with tomcat6 since this effort started, so he may have some input.

Synopsis:  Updating tomcat6 for squeeze-lts put us in the awkward
position of having a newer tomcat in old-stable than in stable; Holger
is helping to get this resolved.  I am recommending that tomcat-native
1.1.31 accompany any updates to tomcat6 6.0.41.
