I'm not sure to understand your issue so I'll try to reformulate it, let me know
if I'm wrong. Given a configuration containing a list property:

List list = new ArrayList();
list.add("foo");
list.add("bar");
config.setProperty("key", list);

Calling config.getString("key") should throw an exception instead of returning
the first element, right ? This would happen when a "strict mode" similar to the
throwExceptionOnMissing flag is enabled. When the strict mode is disabled, you
expect the getString() method to return a concatenation of the values in the
list, that's "foo,bar".

But what happens if the property is a list of Integers and the strict mode is
disabled ? 

List list = new ArrayList();
list.add(new Integer(1));
list.add(new Integer(2));
config.setProperty("key", list);

The values can't be concatenated in this case, so what is the result of
getInt("key") ?
