The JNDI part of simple-jndi has been very limited, partly due to my lack
of grokking of the more complex areas of JNDI. Most of what is there
code-wise is in fact the underlying database as such.

It can handle XML, .properties and now .ini files as input, mainly by
mapping them all to java.util.Properties with a set delimiter to show the

It has some basic conversion tactics and in v0.8 will move to use
Commons-Convert as its conversion api. This lets us store some basic
objects rather than just Strings, using the same API as BeanUtils will use
someday [i hope].
