I couldn't see how to specify embedded mappings at all without the  
proposed new annotations. Can you give an example similar to this one  
using the checked-in version?
     @Field(table="INTEGER_LINES", embeddedKey="true",  
                 @Field(name="point1.x", column="POINT1_X"),
                 @Field(name="point1.y", column="POINT2_Y"),
                 @Field(name="point2.x", column="POINT2_X"),
                 @Field(name="point2.y", column="POINT2_Y")
     Map<Integer, Line> integerLines;
