Of course not!  Tomcat is the reference for Servlets AND for JSP.
The bug will get fixed. It's summer; a lot of people are on holidays and
at least one of the very key people just moved and is still unpacking.
So "unlax", as Bugs used to say.

And yes, some people use Tomcat w/o JSP, others with. It will get fixed.
Sooner, of course, if you provide a working patch :-)
