> Good points, Jason. I'll look into the getAttributeNames() thingy.

I'm not real eager to see this appear with a gAN() call.  It'll be ugly
to have in the reference impl (and I'm paying attention to this since
I'll either have to explain this bloody thing in my book or risk having
readers ask why there's this attrib in *their* Tomcat server that's not
shown in my Tomcat screen shot -- either way a yuck).

I say mangle the name and leave the hack in getAttribute(), and unless 
you look at the src you won't notice.  As it stands you might notice
since it's a commonish name.

It's passing information TO the Tomcat JSP engine, so mangling the name
according to the component receiving the info seems fine. 
org.apache.jasper.classpath or something.
