Somehow I need to find the time to stufy the current API in detail again. At
the moment I have a sense that it might be too complex (but it may not be
possible to simplify...)

I suggest we create a BeanUtils like API within Clazz as a simple front end
rather than changing BeanUtils.

I know of Uberspect but I've not looked at it. Some kind of interoperability
with it is probably essential.

Here it would be nice to join the betwixt refactoring effort thats about to
start and get betwixt built around clazz. It would make it a hell of a lot
more powerful.

If we start with BeanUtils clone within clazz it can be merged back into the
real [beanutil] later if thats appropriate. [betwixt] on the other hand
would be nice to integrate directly with...
