I'll work on this ( I'm in the middle of something - as soon as I get 
some time, this is on the top of my list ).

Yes, but if it brakes something... I'll revert it today - hopefully 4.1.15 
is not yet built.

Performance is the secondary issue here - if the spec doesn't define it
then it's a compliance bug. Side effects ( like flushing the out stream ) 
must be defined in the method documentation. Flushing/commiting/closing the 
stream is too important.

Kin-Man - if you have some quick way to get a confirmation from some
jsp spec people - it could save us some time :-)

I'll do it ASAP. Sorry I couldn't yesterday.
