Why would an API declare an interface as "public abstract interface"? Is there any difference between this and the good old "public interface"?

For example:
http://java.sun.com/products/servlet/2.3/javadoc/javax/servlet/ServletContext.html

Thanks.

Joseph,
The "abstract" is redundant. It is the same thing as a normal interface.
