I knew you'd come up with a real good one ;-)

I haven't seen Sam say he wants separate Tomcat + Tomcat w JSP builds. Sam?

I wonder if you read threads generated by you fully yourself. Danno, Glenn and
I have expressed -1s.

I'm not very relegious about this at all. I just think saying Jakarta is about
Servlets *and* JSP in one place and then separating them by making different builds
to suit random whims and fancies undermines Jakarta.

Ultimately, I'm sure I can be convinced its just that your reasons don't hold much
water: things like there's more people with +1s in the herd are useless. (Besides,
I can see those +1s too.)

Peace, Anil +<:-)
