Email from Aaron Hamid:
Hi there, I've noticed that Rice (at least 1.0.0) depends, sometimes
statically, on some servlet/jsp jars. I see an effort has been made to
exclude them from the distributed war (web module). However they will
get pulled in as transitive dependencies on anything that depends on the
Rice implementation artifact. I was wondering if these dependencies
(specifically the tomcat jasper libs) could be changed to "provided"
scope? I was able to get Rice to compile when I made this change
locally (and copied the dependencies into the test module).
