"Off course that's getting away from standards for no legitimate reason."

The reason, so far, has been licensing and details about jstl.jar.

If it's part of the standard taglibs from Apache, then fine. However, jars from Sun licensed
under their Binary Code License have not been previously allowed to be distributed on ibiblio.

I'm happy if we can depend on jstl.jar as the sources are part of the standard taglib. See

So. If I replace the custom LoopStatus in ForEachTag with the JSTL one, and keep the rest,
what is the difference between our patches?

Here is an overview of the issue:
        Key: JELLY-150
    Summary: j:forEach tag not properly using varStatus attribute
       Type: Bug

     Status: Unassigned
   Priority: Major

    Project: jelly
             core / taglib.core

   Reporter: Ben Anderson

Environment: win2k / cygwin

According to the jstl specification 1.1, the varStatus attribute of the forEach tag should
create a variable with type javax.servlet.jsp.jstl.core.LoopTagStatus.  Currently a variable
is set with type Integer which contains the index of the current iteration.  I created a test
case (I don't think any existed for forEach) that demonstrates this.  I also began making
the fix, but it doesn't fully work.  I am submitting my patch along with the test cases. 
The comments I placed in the code should be enough to tip someone off as to why it's not working
(I hope).  I am relatively new to jelly (been using the standard taglibs for awhile) and have
never opened the source before.  I am willing to complete the patch, but will probably need
some guidance because I messed with it for awhile before determing I couldn't complete without
some help.  Thanks! :-)
