I think I should write some (flow + xml) test cases for trying out the 
different ways of getting the various parameters and other Objects 
(like Maps, Sets, Beans etc) extracted by JXTemplate.

I am off to N.Ireland for a weeks diving on Friday, I will be taking my 
'poota, so hopefully will come back with these written.

But regardless of that, I think the idea Sylvain had of unifying the 
object-space available to JXTemplate with the FOM, has some merit.
