Thanks Pierre,

For the JSTL and JSP JSR's [as the chief ones I'm interested in], do you
know of any archive online which lists the comments which have been sent
in? It'd be even better to see the replies, but i understand that these
are probably covered by NDAs.

Being able to see what comments have been submitted would help with a lot
of things:

*) Know what's already been done to death
*) Help create new ideas in my head
*) Help collate a separate taglib with extensions to the spec
*) Have a vague clue as to what the JSRs are deliberating over
