I had a look at morph (following the link from the beanutils wiki) but their
website didn't really enlighten me and what I did find didn't look very helpful,
so I made a management decision not to pursue it.

The problem is that there are that many little details to check for, e.g. can it 
handle sets, can it deduce the javabean items on generics, can it handle indexed 
lists of ".0, .1, .2" notation etc
