If you'd like to add that feature to the InvokerServlet, I can change my 
vote to 0. (-0 was for adding that to the JspServlet)
I recommend looking at tomcat-deployer to see what it already does 
during webapp compilation, though. Indeed the gain is not very big.

(the J2EE specs will obviously have to tackle the deployment descriptor 
hell issue, however)
