I like  this actually much more than the Ant way. Too
many times I created funny directories like ${src.dir}
et cetera. So I'm not going to miss this Ant "feature".
It would anyhow only apply for those using EL, for all
others, the old rule would apply (I assume here that 
you could define on a higher level to use EL or not ..).

Deadly serious for me ;-) as well as I hope that Peter 
has not been joking with regards to "- add logic/control-
flow features from jsp/ant-contrib (for, if, while, try, 
var etc)

>> 2. its a traumatic change

Kidding?

1. I'm not sure how serious it was
2. its a traumatic change
3. I dont actually like EL handling as the way any invalid bit the the 
expression switches the whole thing to null, instead of telling where 
you've left something undefined. That may just be the JSP2 
implementation, of course,.
