I've finally taken the time to put the unresolved issues into
components, per SERVLET_SPEC-121. I didn't bother categorizing the
resolved issues. If someone wants to do that, I would appreciate it.

Also, if someone wants to suggest some additional components, or change
the ones I added, let me know here. I'm hoping not, but I'll entertain

For easy reference, the list of components is

API (8)
Configuration (17)
Container (15)
Filter/Servlet (6)
HTTP (15)
I/O (10)
Listeners (4)
Misc (14)
Security (13)
Sessions (2)
