> The BeanMap class in the "optional" section has:
>     public static HashMap defaultTransformers = new HashMap();
> I think this is a *really* bad idea. 
> Firstly, because it's static, various parts of an application can interact in
> unexpected ways. For example, some library your code is calling might,
> unexpectedly, add a transformer to the default transformers causing surprising
> effects.
> That's even more interesting if the library (commons-collections or
> commons-beanutils) is deployed via a shared webapp in a container. In that case,
> one webapp can have side-effects on other webapps.
> And because it's a public member, there is no way to control access to this field.
> This class was in commons-collections since 1.0. It was copied into
> commons-beanutils before the 1.7.0 release, and deprecated in commons-collections.
> This class is only in the "optional" section, and is not used by the core
> beanutils code.
