Not much :)

I'd like to see commons-convert get a restart though - it's
functionality I've needed many times and come up with various
intentionally non-generic solutions (having seen how bogged down the
generic solution can get).

What are your thoughts on the current API in commons-convert? It's
much simpler to start with that and start improving that to get a new
codebase + software grant added in.  Is it much the same, or is there
a critical design difference?

The last one of these I knocked up was:

public interface Formatter
    Object format(Object input);
    void setPattern(String pattern);


public interface Parser
    Object parse(String input, Class type);
    void setPattern(String pattern);

With a user's hat on, looking at commons-convert - I'm quite confused :)
