The problem isn't that Tomahawk is needed to make autoscrolling work.
The problem is that MyFaces without tomahawk doesn't work if it's enabled.

If autoscrolling is part of Tomahawk (the location could be argued
either way in my opinion) rather than part of impl, then the
autoscroll setting in the web.xml file should be ignored if tomahawk
isn't installed.

Instead, the autoscroll setting is being checked, and the impl assumes
that Tomahawk is going to be in place to handle the javascript being

Unfortunately, in all of the MyFaces example web.xml files, this value
is set true by default, causing MyFaces to unexpectly break when used
without Tomahawk.

It's affecting a large number of users in a way that is
incredibily-difficult to diagnose.
