Funny thing... I was looking at this code yesterday and came to the
same conclusion. As far as I can tell this class is not performing
any function at the moment and can be removed.

However, the class doc says:

* <p>An HttpServletResponseWrapper that can be enabled or disabled
* with respect to the methods that deal with the writing of contents
* to the response. This is necessary to avoid sending content
* that appears outside of the <f:view> tag to the Ajax response.

I can understand how in JSP-land content outside of <f:view> might end
up being written directly back to the browser by the JSP engine (and
we work around this in Trinidad/ADF Faces), though I am not sure how
this would be an issue for Facelets.

Perhaps Roger remembers what use case prompted the addition of this code?
