See my previous mail; you do _not_ need to have a package statement
for the generated servlet class. Adding it just complicates life.

As long as there's no prefix added to the package name, yes. If you
add a package name prefix, the JspC in TC 4.1.18 (with the patch we're
talking about here) generates "package;" for a
JSP page in the context-relative dir "foo" and places the class file
in "<JspC-outdir>/foo". Hence, a structure mismatch that will cause
