General theme looks good :)

The title still mentions Jakarta. Should rename to:

"Apache RDC Taglib - Reusable Dialog Components Tag Library"

Basically we should have been branding ourselves with "Apache" rather
than "Jakarta" for about 6 years now :)

I've found it makes things easier to have these all together (like
redirecting them for example), but given that Maven puts other files
into the parent directory anyway it's not much of a justification.

I think we also need a simultaneous page in
jakarta/site/retired/taglibs.html that lists out the retired taglibs.
Plus that means a bit of complexity in the .htaccess; we'll want to
keep the old sites for retired taglibs so no global redirect of
/taglibs/ over. Instead we'll need to list explicitly the items to
redirect over to the Tomcat side.

So... steps:

* New Standard site that merges 1.0, 1.1 and 1.x docs together, rather
than treating them as separate taglibs.
* Retired Jakarta Taglibs page.
* New Taglibs site that flattens and updates for Tomcat land.
* RDC Taglib regenerated from final taglib-parent.
* Extended Taglib site. Can be pretty minimal.
* Jakarta Taglibs htaccess rules.
* Link on when all looks good and Tomcat dev@ approves.
