Not a problem.  I will add the license and e-mail the new files along
with test cases later this week.  Unless someone speaks up I will leave
the package as is.

Closure Implementation

hi norm

i've taken a look and these look pretty cool and i'd be interested in 
adding them to beanutils. there are a few issues that should be
before i'd be willing to make this happen:

1. the apache license has not been included at the top of each file.
this assigns copyright to the ASF it's taken as a sufficient indication 
that you are willing to donate the code. please either resubmit with the

ASF license at the top of each source file or confirm to the list that
want to donate this code.

2, would you be willing to create and donate some unit tests for these 
class? (all new code should have unit tests and if you're not willing to

create them that means a committer must which is extra work and may lead

to the item sinking down the list of priorities...)

3. packaging. as submitted, these classes will be placed in the root 
beanutils package. if there are going to be a lot of other stuff along 
similar lines, maybe it'd be better to create a new package. comments
