Thanks! So far, I can't see anything wrong with the packages. Personally
I'm glad to see CDBS isn't used anymore. It builds without problems
(under sarge as well). I will test the packages tomorrow with a real
setup (apache2, tomcat5, Java servlets).

AFAIK there is no Supersedes: option for control files, but I wouldn't
Conflict, Provide or Replace libapache2-mod-jk2. There is no technical
reason why the packages couldn't coexist, and since the configuration
files have a different format you can't just replace jk2 with jk.
