Shawn mentioned it in a post a week back or so I think. Unsure if it was
on Dev or Users. Basically the problem with <c:else> is that there's no
container tag:


so it's probably a pain to implement.

However, it's probably worth trying outside of JSTL to see if it's
possible :) Any interest in working on an else tag? Either one that worked
with <c:if> or had its own <xx:if> tag would be a good way to show the
JSTL JSR group that such a thing is possible.

I'll add it to the list I've started compiling of useful tags to code to
compliment the JSTL.
