Trunk now passes the JSTL1.2 TCK so we can release when we want to. However,
there have already been some large changes in the 1.2 stream (such as the
move to the Tomcat project, using a 1.5 runtime, switching to Maven build)
that will be visible to users so if we are going to make any others my vote
would be to do that before releasing 1.2.0 so they are only impacted once;
examples of these are:

* using a different XPath implementation to fix the performance issues with
the XML tags (changes dependencies)
* splitting out the 1.0 compatibility support into a different artifact
* clean-up on the Maven POMs (especially any changes that impact the parent

We may also need to revise the release process based on the move to the
Tomcat project and Maven build.

With that in mind, what do people think about shooting for a release towards
the end of the month?
