I'll try to write a small interceptor that sets the compiler and other
options for jasper ( probably next week it'll be ready ). ( that will not
require a new release of tomcat - you just install the interceptor in the
classpath and add it to tomcat.jar ).

I think Larry is also working on something - he sent a proposal few days
ago about how to enable debugging ( and pass options to jasper ). It'll
probably be part of a 3.2.x bug-fix release, as it requires some changes
in the existing code.
As a workaround you can use the web.xml in your web application.
