The issue with using compile="true" is that it does not give as much control
over compilation.  For starters we use a custom extension to the web app
classloader to introduce another directory to the classpath *before*
WEB-INF/classes.  That's the main item -- we could probably live with just
using compile="true" if we could control the compilation classpath.  We also
use UTF-8 as the encoding for javac, but I believe jspc must do so internally
as well -- as that's what it produces.  [By the way, the documentation should
really make the fact that jspc produces UTF-8 Java sources clear as this is not
the normal default for Java sources or javac.]

I'm re-opening this since there is a use case for compile="false", but I'll
understand if that use case is insufficiently interesting to everyone else (as
we can work around this ourselves as well by not using pre-compiled JSPs when
