Do we need a branch at all?

It's a breaking change, so it must be introduced with the next major
version (2.5 or 3.0). Right now I simple replaced ognl3 with
commons-ognl and just after changing imports and some small changes to
struts-default.xm everything looks ok - almost ;-) The only problem is
with the OVal plugin as it bases internally on ognl3 - defining ognl3
as the OVal plugin dependency solves the problem as well.

I see the only value to have a branch - it will be a testing branch,
just to check if everything is ok, where users can check it out, build
and test with their applications - but I doubt if this will happened

Basically I don't like branches, they are good if some work must be
done in already released version (like hotfixes), in any other case
trunk is the best :-)
