The 2.0 builds contain support for the tagdir attribute, although
I'm not sure what you mean by "rejects comments". You should open a
formal bug report for any problems you're seeing so they can be
addressed properly, although I suspect there's a network port
conflict launching your installation of Tomcat for testing purposes
if it's already running as an installed service.
