Offering alternatives to subclassing ActionServlet so that other
resources (like things for ValidatorForm and Tiles) can be loaded has
come up a lot, and Oleg has come up with a good solution that we are
testing. So, the context here is why should I subclass the ActionServlet
*just* to do this. And if we all start offering cool resources that
require the ActionServlet to be subclassed, the heirarchy can get out of
control. But, I don't believe there are systemic problems with
sublassing ActionServlet for appliation-specific needs.
