There is no need for all this complexity to generate a package name
in the new Jasper.  The way jasper now loads jsp pages, each page is
completely isolated from all other pages.  Every jsp page compiled 
could be a class named "org.apache.jsp.MyJSP" without
any concern whatsoever about conflicts because each individual page
has its own class loader.  I will modify the current jasper class loader
to support putting the jsp pages in a package, but this is just to comply
with the JSP 1.2 spec.

All of the previous code in jasper to do all the package and class name
mangling was to overcome the limitations of how the Jasper class loader
for jsp pages was designed.

The new jasper makes it very easy to find and view the java source for
a translated jsp page, it is located in
