+=== Provide better support for DynaBean in SetNextRule ===
+The jakarta commons !BeanUtils library provides a '!DynaBean' class, which acts rather like
a java class whose properties can be altered at runtime. The reflection functionality provided
by the !BeanUtils library knows about !DynaBeans, and essentially makes them appear to be
ordinary javabean classes when performing reflection.
+Most Digester rules handle !DynaBeans just like ordinary bean classes, because they use the
!BeanUtils reflection methods.
+However it has been reported that the !SetNextRule doesn't handle !DynaBeans well (see mail
archives for 2004-11-25, subject '!DynaBean Hierarchy'). 
+It would be nice to fix this if an elegant solution can be found (and fix any other rules
that might not work well with !DynaBeans).
