I'm -0 on releasing c-c with the changed behaviour w.r.t
get<valueType>(String propertyName) (e.g. getString() or getBoolean()).

All snapshots up to 1.0-rc1 returned null if no property exists. Since
1.0-rc1, this throws an Exception. This will also catch a lot of code
that uses c-c unaware.

There is now also the problem, that get<valueType>(String
propertyName) differ in their semantics from get<valueType>(String
propertyName, <valueType> default).

Emmanuel proposed to add a switch to change the behaviour.
