Tomcat 4.0, 5.0 and 5.5 are totally different development streams with
different features.

I think we can just get rid of tomcat4 now as its totally dead. This way
we get rid of another package in contrib too.

When tomcat5.5 is in the archive and we added the needed patches to
eclipse to work with it we should remove tomcat5 too.
