If jasper 2.1 works with Jetty then IMO we should use it for 2.0-M1.
While this may not match the standalone jetty distribution it gives us
some consistency across geronimo assemblies. If someone develops a app
using the tomcat assembly it should work on the jetty assembly.  A
good example is Geronimo's admin console which works on both
assemblies (and I hope it stays that way :-)

And like you say, now that tomcat has released 6.0.2 beta the jetty
guys might be interested in using jasper from that release instead of
JSP from glassfish.
