Looks good to me. I think that's what the original poster wanted. He
just needs to add in the parts using reflection to instantiate the child
object and set the attributes on it. Although, I guess the reflection
code is a bit tricky, especially if there are type conversions, such as
converting a string value of an attribute into a number. (Basically,
it's re-implementing whatever digester.addSetProperties() does.)
