I could find is to copy the ConvertUtils.convert( object ) code and call an internal method
from Betwixt itself.

Thinking about this change - I believe in solving one issue you create
another. Consider someone that has created a custom ConvertUtilsBean
implementation and overriden the convert(Object) method and registered
that in ConvertUtils - now their method no longer gets invoked so IMO
this is as much as a break in compatibility for Betwixt users as the
issue its trying to resolve.
