	I'm new to Betwixt, but it looks like we have two options.  One is 
to define a .betwixt file for every POJO, and the other is to have one big 
class which sets up all the Betrixt mappings in code.  I was hoping for 
the middle solutions -- one mapping file listing all of the mappings.  
Which path do you recommend?

	It seems like we'll need to do a bit of customization since some 
of the tags have a mix of attributes and content (description, icon, 
etc.), but hopefully we can map the same "description" bean to the 
"description" element wherever it may appear.

	The Betwixt documentation would be significantly improved by an
example with a more complex XML format... I guess we can contribute one if
we go forward with this.  :)
