 That seems a bit hostile. The majority of stuff that could
go into /ext is harmless. Ignoring it punishes users who
correctly install the "right" extensions. 

 My proposal was based on idea that if you can't solve a
hard-to-diagnose problem, you ought to at least make it
obvious. I'd be worried that ignoring /ext solves one
such problem but replaces it with another.

 jakarta-servletapi-4 packages ought to have version info
in any case. jakarta-tomcat-connector packages already do.
Is there a maintainer for the servletapi stuff?
