So you're saying Jon is not proposing that because of his hatred for JSPs,
but because users keep asking him for that ?

Disabling JSPs in a server is quite easy - and has been possible for 
a long time. 

Almost 1/2 of the tomcat community is working on jasper, and is the piece of 
tomcat that has probably the biggest distribution ( if we include Jetty and 
all other servers that use jasper ). And most people in the tomcat 
community are using JSPs. I very much doubt a tomcat without
jasper is best for the users or community. Most developers will test
and work on the distribution that includes jasper. 

Anyway - Jon, Bill and Glenn voted +1 - and so far only Remy is -1. 
Even if I change my vote to -1, the vote would still pass. It doesn't
look like a "consensus", but it is a majority at this moment.
