Hmm. It seems I was wrong on two accounts here. 

First HttpServletResponse.sendError() is specified to send an html error
page. This just means we need to use HttpServletResponse.setStatus().
Only problem is the two argument version -
HttpServletResponse.setStatus(int sc, String msg) - seems to be
deprecated with no replacement!

The http spec does allow for a customized "reason phrase". So why this
was done remains a mystery to me:

-- HTTP/1.1 (RFC 2068) --

6.1.1 Status Code and Reason Phrase


The reason phrases listed here are only recommended
   -- they may be replaced by local equivalents without affecting the

          Status-Code    = "100"   ; Continue
                         | "101"   ; Switching Protocols
                         | "200"   ; OK

-- /HTTP/1.1 (RFC 2068) --

What do you think? Should we skip the two argument sendStatus/setStatus
methods? Or should we ignore the deprecated warning from the servlet

The isRedirected flag still needs to be set on the Redirector upon
sendStatus(). We need to decide how. We can do this by specifying null
as the url argument to the redirect methods:

package o.a.c.environment;

interface Redirector {
   * Redirect to the given URL, null only sets the
   * isRedirected flag.
  void redirect(boolean sessionMode, String url);
   * Unconditionally redirect to the given URL, null only
   * sets the isRedirected flag.
  void globalRedirect(boolean sessionMode, String url);


Or we can add a special nullRedirect() method.
