	that's because the status variable is read-only.  It has no setCount()
	The easiest way, if you really can't find anyway around it, which
will probably work, is just:
<% break; %>

	but the best way is probably to re-write your loop so you don't
need to do this.

	Alternately, you could write a custom tag that uses
findAncestorWithClass() to grab the LoopTagSupport object (i.e. the
c:forEach tag object) and try using introspection to set the "end"
property.  (or make the specific to apache taglibs and cast it to
a org.apache....ForEachTag object and call setEnd() directly)
