PropertyUtils.getNestedProperty() doesn't allow getXxxx on Map-Instances any longer

Accessing Map values does still work via obj1.obj2(obj3).

Even when many requested that feature I wonder that loosing backwards 
compatibility and loosing accessibility of properties of Map derivated classes 
is neccessary to "win" this "golden" feature of not having to type "(...)". 

Plus the work others have to do to redesign classes to make them work again.

Sorry, the decision in this case doesn't make much sense to me.

When deciding of wasting time redesigning classes for a feature that has a 
disantvantage in the three mentioned cases above, I decide to put my time in 
patching beanutils for our internly use with JSP. The time is much better spend 
there.
