I agree completely.

This is more than understandable, Jeff.

Okay. I have a local setup of the webapp tests which has worked in the 
past. But I do not use Ant to build, but have a JBuilder WebApp Setup. 
So somebody else will have to fix this Ant config stuff. I can look into 
the code tomorrow. I will incorporate the small patches that were 
submitted today to fix some of the problems and then check for more .

Thanks :-) The stream cascade looks nice at first sight but incorporates 
a performance penalty of course (single byte reads operations). Maybe we 
should have some performance measurement before we decide on this
