IMO the max. byte-code size of a method
(currently 64kb) needs to be increased, too.
For "normal" programs it isn't a problem and
64kb seem to be quite much. But for JSPs it is
not really much, because every servlet engine
I know of does something like that:
jsp:
public void jspPage() {
out.write("html...");
code
}
It makes _one_ method out of your jsp. But if
you use includes this blows up rather quickly...
So, IMO increasing the size from 2^32 to 2^64
would be a good idea..
