I noticed that getRealPath returns null when running packed.  This makes
sense because there is no "real" path; it's running from within the war.
I didn't want to corrupt any responses with this.  I also wanted to make
sure this is reliable.  Sounds as if it is.

This is more or less reliable.  The original question is skewed at best,
however, as a webapp is not supposed to know whether it's packed or not
and certainly not supposed to run differently depending on whether it's
packed or not.
