I'm afraid there's a misunderstanding. The entry is about *configuring* Tomcat
to support remote debugging. Not just about *starting* it with remote debugging

It's not; most of our Tomcat servers are setup this way.

That FAQ contains the question "How do I start hacking Tomcat in Eclipse?"
In fact, it's even the first question in that FAQ. No matter how you define
"frequent", I hope you'll agree there are many more people configuring Tomcat
for remote debugging than hacking Tomcat in Eclipse.
