Hello, A number of useful methods seem to be private. It makes sub-classing the taglibs inconvenient.
For example, I would like to extend FormatNumberTag so that I can change the grouping separator. If configureFormatter in org.apache.taglibs.standard.tag.common.fmt.FormatNumberSupport were protected, instead of private, I could simply wrap it up and extend it in a few lines of code and let polymorphism do its thing. As it stands, I'll need to duplicate most of the code from FormatNumberSupport. -- Stuart Thiel
