That matches the JavaBeans standard-- 8.3.2 addresses boolean properties
specifically and allows is/get/set together.  But if 'is' is present, that's
the one that will be used for a boolean.

Life is much easier when everything conforms to the spec, if something is
misbehaving you can go to "the rules" and either fix your code or log a bug
for BeanUtils.
