 What if my connection isn't at page scope?  Is there a reason why the statement tag doesn't
use pageContext.findAttribute()? 

The <sql:connection> tags doesn't support assigning to another scope, so
that's the only real logic there.  I suppose it could use findAttribute,
but I don't really dig on people storing Connections at other
scopes.  That's what database pools are for.  :)
