I develop module based servlets, so there exists at least one.  I think people 
just stumble over this problem again and again: you need servlet-sig in a 
module servlet to get bindings for the request structure (request-bindings is 
just an accessor after all).  The documentation should point this out, which 
has been pointed out (Jan'04).  It would also be nice to have a module servlet 
example that used the request structure included in the distribution.
