If someone submits a value in a form that you mirror back to them in a 
place that might be evaluated by ognl, then "@System@exit(-1)" would be 
a pretty evil risk, no?  I'm pretty certain that the most recent xwork 
.jar prevents ognl evaluation while setting parameters from the request, 
so the path that string must take to be destructive is now much more
