Subject Re: [beanutils] java.util.Date converter

hi craig,
thank you for your answer. i think the date formats to use are those in 
  ISO 8601.

see: http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-datetime

maybe the converter could be added to the beanutils codebase but not 
used by default by ConvertUtils. what do you think?
