Configuration.getInt() should define its accepted inputs, and should also accept octal
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: CONFIGURATION-422
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-422
             Project: Commons Configuration
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Type conversion
            Reporter: david cogen
            Priority: Minor


I can find no information about the format of the string that Configuration.getInt(String)
accepts. I have determined by experimentation and examining the source that it accepts decimal
integers, and hex integers if preceeded by "0x". This should be explained.

Also, it is customary for functions which accept decimal and hex to also accept octal. A string
with leading "0" should be parsed as octal.

This should apply to getByte(), getShort(), and getLong() as well.
