Even better, if the library targets JSP 1.2, the tag handler can implement
TryCatchFinally and be sure to close the connection it opened before it
goes out of scope.

more declarative open/close set of semantics might make more sense, but
some authors might value the simplicity of a nested block that takes care
of everything automatically.
