yes, I am taking care of it (not sure that action worths an issue)

We've haven't used it but we could (should?) do - BU supports the
useful feature of properties settings via Converters, that means that
someone could chose to pass a String to set an Integer.

The transformer package was initially designed for that purpose - we
never used it because of lack of time, not because it is not useful :P
