Well, the documentation was there also for old version of Jigsaw that were
not bundled with the servlet jar (because of copyrights at that time). Of
course, the jar provided are the right one and there is no need to
downgrade the jar (however, if you want to use servlet 2.2 for Jigsaw
2.0.4 using the devel jar, you will have to upgrade to servlet 2.2).

yes, and Jigsaw 2.1 should use a special wrapper to catch exits and save
the server state (not tested yet, as I don't have a recent jdk1.3
available for solaris).
