Please don't remove these from Debian. 

Many people still prefer to use Jserv because it does things that
Tomcat still doesn't do (session load balancing).

Other servlet engines (namely GNU-Paperclips, the FSF's servlet
engine) require GNUJSP to provide JSP services.

I will be packaging GNU-Paperclips for Debian once we are API 2.3
compliant. I hope that Debian will provide it in the main release when
I have done so.
