IMO, Struts 2.0 is a good time to leave the old tags (defined as ones with
JSTL replacements) behind.  Struts 1.x apps would still have them
available but 2.x apps would use the JSTL.  I consider it a disservice to
the communtity to distribute Struts specific versions of the more powerful
and standardized JSTL tags.  

Note that none of my comments are directed at Struts tags that actually
add value to the framework and don't have standardized replacements.
