I added the FOM wrappers in the TemplateObjectModelHelper. It breaks two 
test cases that uses #{$cocoon/request/protocol}, but these doesn't work 
in the original JXTG either.

Now the question is if this is the correct behaviour, according to the 
it seem like the get methods in the request object should be accessible 
as properties. In the refactored FOM_Cocoon in 
AttributeHolderJavaObject.get (super class of FOM_Request etc), the 
property access is explicitely turned of for methods. The old FOM_Cocoon 
code before the refactoring behaved in the same way IIUC. Is the 
documentation wrong?, has it been all the time?

I didn't add the request etc properties whithout Cocoon prefix, as these 
  according to the documentation has been deprecated for ever. And as we 
have the same behaviour for flow and non flow use of the refactored JXTG 
they are not needed any more. They are of course easy to add if anyone 
find them important.
