Ummmm, I was shocked when I hit the code in BeanUtilsBean.setProperty() that was
calling my Converter even when the value being set was of the correct type. 
Instead, it was converted to a String and then (erroneously) converted back to
an object of the original type.

I'm not understanding why the first proposed bug fix ( Don't perform conversion
on types that are already assignment compatiable ) doesn't seem like the way to
go.  

When are people expecting a Converter to be called?  I always assumed it was
when a conversion was required, not when a type was being set.
