> in AbstractConfiguration.resolveContainerStore (javadoc):
>   * Returns an object from the store described by the key. If the value is a
>   * List object, replace it with the first object in the list.
> but what if getProperty returns a List because this is the type of the property? 
>  this code will silently grab the first elemen. I don't understand why. Probably 
> the reason is that some class extending AbstractConfiguration returns List for 
> properties. In this case I think the better approach is to have that class 
> return the first element instead, rather than returning the List and letting 
> AbstractConfiguration (which is used by many other implementations, including 
> outside of the configuration package) handle it
