Well, the code is there now and you have expressed your opinion ;-)

I guess I will just back them out so that we can discuss this further.  But
is how I look at it.  You pass a non-numeric string to a setter that takes
in, say,
Integer as parameter, it is still going to 'validate' it to see if it a
or else throw a NumberFormatException.  So, in effect, SrcFile et al. hasn't
really introduced as yet an unseen/unknown concept.
