OK.  I guess I could just have nginx balance the http traffic and have 
use tomcat's http server rather than passing through ajp13 traffic.

I'd like to offload all SSL decryption to the loadbalancers too - so 
traffic would come in on 443, hit the load balancer, get decrypted, and 
farmed out as http traffic to the various tomcat nodes.  How would I go 
about that?
