Just another thought: The JXPath based modules (request-param is not but 
request is) allow to call arbitrary java methods. I don't know the 
syntax off head but there are examples on the JXPath site how to do it 
(well, they don't illustrate our modules but since the string on the 
right hand side of the colon is passed to JXPath as is, it is applicable 
here. There might even be samples in our javadocs.)
