I find milestone more helpful than alpha or beta which I typically think 
of as being mostly function complete releases (which is not true for 
this initial delivery).

Yes, as I mentioned on earlier appends I believe including JSTL 1.2 is 
just a matter of including the library (which I'm still planning to pull 
from Glassfish based on the recommendation from the jakarta team).

JSTL has pre-req on JSP 2.1
-  Jetty 6 we have now is still using jsp 2.0 from jasper. I'm trying to 
get my local build to use the jsp-2.1 that is produced by Jetty 6 (which 
I think also includes Glassfish parts IIUC).
-  Tomcat 6 - It looks like Paul is covering JSP 2.1 with his work.

If I get one of the containers working with JSP 2.1 then I can verify if 
the JSTL is just a matter of dropping in the jar.
