Sure, I could probably work through getting the build.xml for jasper to run.  It just seemed
something that would have already been done.  If I get one working, I'll post it here.

There is a jasper build.xml, but it doesn't build the jars without a complete Tomcat build
environment (and possibly an older version of Ant), so I stopped working on debugging that
There's no documentation for it either -- the code is the documentation, I guess.

I definitely don't want to move up to Tomcat 6 until the problems with debugging JSP pages
in the
Tomcat 5 environment are resolved.  We've waited a while, and now I'm trying to hack it to
point where we can use it internally.

Thanks again,
