We distribute the JRE in our installation. I know these days you're allowed to distribute
tools.jar (and javac.exe?) but the JRE we distribute (which would be inconvenient to change)
doesn't allow this.

There's also the fact that getting rid of JSPs gets rid of a fair amount of the *possibility*
of security problems, which is never a bad thing :)
