That's what I thought at first, but it turned out it didn't work at all,
even when "development" was set to true. The only way to reload a JSP was to
- do a reload of the webapp through the manager
- be patient (up to 5 minutes, which was the delay of the background thread

So for normal users, 4.1.1 won't reload JSPs :-(
