This doesn't solve the problem described by those wishing for a public 
constructor.  My interpretation is that the bean must be constructed at 
compile time, not at runtime, so that users don't need to do anything 
special to use the wrapper (e.g. have BCEL on the classpath).  

In an ironic twist, my plan is to use Velocity to automatically generate
the bean wrapper as a source code file that is compiled with the
XxxUtils class.
