Well, if you apply the patch that fixes the "NPE when packaged tag
libraries are used" proble, it would be _less_ broken ;-) Seriously,
this patch has been submitted by at least two people, has been available
for months, and does not cause any regression. Why not just apply it
and move on?

The "mangling problem" (I assume you refer to problems with filepath
names containing dots) is far less common, and if it's hard to fix (I
haven't looked at it), it could wait. But if the TC 5 patch can easily
be ported to 4.1, why not do it? Even if you refer to some problem I'm
not aware of, fixing the NPE problem can hardly be a bad idea since
it affects _everyone_ who tries to use JSPC with packaged tag libraries
(the majority case in the real world).
