Surely, there are irregularities.

There are many places where java.lang.Class instance is not a
parameter to the method, but obtained in place by calling
obj.getClass().  In such cases comparing object's class against
primitive type classes is meaningless.

I've created a patch to clean them:

Comparing against primitive types is only meaningful in method
isNumberType(Class) of ELArithmetic and several methods in ELSupport,
where the Class argument is passed explicitly.

What is the history of this code before rev. 389146 of 2006-03-27 when
/tomcat/tc6.0.x/trunk was created?
