Well - I tought the rule is that we can't release with dependencies on 
unreleased or beta code.

And HTMLManagerServlet was supposed to be a simple servlet - it now has 
dependencies on fileupload and that is forced on the whole thing. 

Glenn: is it ok if we comment this out for 4.1 ? Can you move the upload 
to a different servlet ? It doesn't have to be in HTMLManager, it can be in 
a regular standalone webapp.
