Alrighty. Well, after I reach the milestone on the project that I'm on, I'm 
going to start tackling cleaning up the JSP emitter some.  I haven't looked
closely at the overall arch of the way Tomcat is built, but it seems fairly
straightforward to me so far.

Is there any "read--before you start coding" type docs for
Jakarta/Tomcat/Jasper ?
I just don't want to step on any toes...

Absolutly. I agree that they can be useful, sometimes a lifesaver. When I
get around
to it I'll make sure there is a configuation option for it. ;)
