Interesting.  The string serves as a pseudo buffer which expands in length
as required.  Very cool.  To use this approach one would have to be dealing
directly with a servlet, right?  IOW, this approach would not be practical
within the context of a JSP, right?

Of course you could also forward to an errors page on the occurrence of an
exception since there has been no committed response at that point.

Since responses are just HTML, I would not expect them to be very big.
Someone made mention of the fact that the default buffer size was 8k.  I'm
really surprised that I exceeded that with my test.

Thanks for the input.
