This is a tough one - for me, at least. Should an independent Tiles have
glue code for Struts, or should it be Struts' responsibility to provide the
glue? If we look at Velocity, the glue is over there, but we've also talked
about it coming here. If we look at Validator, the glue is here. If we look
at Chain, the servlet and portlet glue is over there.

My preference, at least at this time, would be for the Struts / Tiles glue
to stay here. That will help Standalone Tiles stand on its own feet, and
especially help with the notion that it's now independent of Struts. Any
perception - real or otherwise - that Tiles is tied to Struts will be
detrimental to Tiles as an independent library.
