So we don't use Tomcat anywhere right now, so yeah that's unprecedented.
I did attempt it awhile back for Gerrit (like, years ago), but I found
to be a huge pain in the butt for basically no gain (in that case).
It's not impossible--there's packages and all that fun stuff for Tomcat and
related tooling--but I think that Tomcat generally isn't worth the overhead
and maintenance burden for a single service.
