register converters by both target class and source class

           Summary: register converters by both target class and source
                    class
           Product: Commons
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Bean Utilities
        AssignedTo: commons-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: ericpabst@discoverfinancial.com


One of the big shortcomings I see with the ConvertUtils is that you can't 
intuitively register different converters based on source class.  e.g. 
SomeClass to String, and OtherClass to String.  Especially since multiple 
ConvertUtilsBeans can co-exist, it only makes sense to be able to get away from 
depending on the toString() method for ALL conversions to a String type (this 
is the nearest match that I can see to what I'm asking for).
