hi Christoph

(beanutils already had some private code that did just that. the patch 
moved that code into a separate class, made it public and added some 
convenience wrappers.)

i have taken a quick look (at the velocity introspection code) and there 
are certainly a number of useful utility methods which might make good 
additions to beanutils. want to volunteer to mine velocity?

maybe it'd make some sense to try to consolidate - as far as possible - 
the general reflection code into beanutils. i know that gier supplied some 
of the code so maybe that was his original plan...
