hi Stephen

i haven't read anything bad about my proposal so i plan to start work on 
this stuff soon.

i've taken a quick look and you've made quite a few changes. any pointers 
you'd like to give me about these changes?

i've noticed that you've commented out the invokeMethod implementation. my 
first job will be to get that working about. are there any modifications 
that you need me to make to the commented out code (or is it just a case 
of get it working again)?

one of the consequences of MethodUtils being in lang is that lang can't 
depend on commons-logging. i found that without logging, it's nearly 
impossible to debug some things.

what i'd like to do is add a debug boolean and a log method (probably both 
private) that logs messages to System.out. this would allow debugging 
calls to remain in place *but* we'd have to remember to switch the flag 
back off before committing. is that ok with you?
