Therefore... I have to touch all files, since all JSP files include
the file that was modified.  As I mentioned before, GNUJSP keeps a
record of what files include what, and if told to, recompiles all
including files when an included file changes.  I wonder if there
is a way to make Tomcat act this way.  We have 4 people working on
a project that has about 50 JSP pages, and they all include 
header, footer, menu, and other JSP included files.  Having one 
person do a "touch *.jsp" whenever he tweaks "lib/header.jsp" is 
a bit disruptive.
