> We had a {{ConfigKey<List<VolumeOptions>>}}, and were setting that in YAML
using a map. We expected {{VolumeOptions.fromMap(map)}} to be called as part of {{getConfig(VOLUMES,
val)}}. This does indeed happen.
> However, if {{VolumeOptions.fromMap(map)}} throws an exception (e.g. because the input
data was malformed), it does not report any problems and instead the {{getConfig}} just returns
a list containing uncoerced map objects. As a result, we subsequently got a {{ClassCastException}}
in our entity code.
> This was extremely hard to figure out - it involved attaching a debugger, breakpointing
and stepping through the coercion code.

> The {{TypeCoercerExtensible.tryCoerceWithFromMethod}} accidentally throws away the exception!
It is therefore treated as though there was no applicable coercion. However, because {{List<Map>}}
can be cast to {{List}} then it returns it anyway.
