[THREDDS #YRL-997326]: Follow-up on TDS discussion

Hi Don,

We have been testing the TDS 4.3 requirement for Tomcat and are not seeing any 
problems with it running under the latest Tomcat 6. Lansing will be sending out 
an email to the thredds list about this.

John is looking at how extensive the aggregation issue is in 4.2. However, the 
fix in 4.3 is not a simple port to 4.2 so it still may not be feasible for us 
to back port the change. We'll email the thredds list when we have a better 
understanding of the situation.
