great, how did you determine the /taglib/database part? taglib a context?

i put a tld in WEB-INF/jsp/ and it did not get picked up by the build
script...of course if i put it in web/bleh.tld it gets picked up, but that
is rather ugly. (i can always copy the file to the correct deployed
location, but i do not want to have to do that)
