So what that means is that esql and all other XSP TagLibs get de-valued.

For example, people who want to access databases in a webApp that might
require redirect functionality, are forced to write (and maintain) their DB
access code in Java rather than using the far simpler esql language, as
they could in C1.

This is a very different scenario and for many people will be a non-trivial
difference between the two environments.

This is why I suggested earlier that some way be found to compile Actions
from XML like happens with XSP and generators, so that non-java programmers
can once again leverage the power of TagLibs that they loose by moving to
