Custom JSTL tag plugins

Does anyone know how to implement JSTL custom tag plugins?

I have created a taglib class that works fine, but the JSP page has nearly 100 occurrences of the tag and the compiled JSP servlet file would be gigantic in size because of the way taglib implementations are integrated. I have also written a tag plugin class (derived from the Tomcat 5.0s Jasper classes). How can I incorporate this tag plugin class into my JSP page so that the plugin actually writes to the Java source for the JSP page (like it does for the <jsp:useBean> and <jsp:getProperty> tags)? I have been unable to find any useful information on the web.

Since that's a Tomcat-specific topic, I'm going to move this on to the Tomcat forum.
