Does this mean that we'll be hosting EL?  IMHO, resurrecting commons-el to
bring it up to JSP 2.1 was always going to be the hardest part of TC 6.  

I agree that the changes for Servlet 2.5 aren't that bad, but we might as
well branch Container while we are at it.

We'll have to get access to the TCK ourselves first ;-).
