Ah.  I didn't even know such a thing could be done. :)

At the bottom of all the module download pages is a link to the source
of the page that served it:
It's also present a the bottom of the module info pages:

These examples are pretty dense with code, but if you check the current
website CVS (available on SourceForge) you can see some much simpler
examples where we mostly just include other pages in a SSI-like style.

JSPs are pretty easy to write.  And if you have a little Java knowledge,
you can probably do some powerful stuff with them.
