> NOTE: Think that Tomcat (and related) does something like Remoting.

Java servers like tomcat and resin use a much simpler technique.  Instead of
the module in apache doing anything with the request besides authentication and
the like, they just pass the *request* to another process that hosts the
servlet engine.  As a result, the traffic between the two is very minimal.  It
is also an interception point that can be used to accomplish load balancing and
failover.  Forcing the module to do remoting or otherwise processing the
request only to pass it off to another process is just wasted cycles.
