	FYI, there is a set of JavaBeans for ejb-jar.xml in CVS now:
o.a.g.deployment.model.ejb.  Right now it is quite close to the XML
format, with exceptions such as "String[] Method.getMethodParam()" instead
of "String[] Method.getMethodParams().getMethodParam()"

	However, I had thought to move to make that *more* inline with the
XML format rather than *less* in line, because I'd like to use JXPath for
XPath processing (it resolves XPaths against POJOs, and quite well) rather
than carrying around a spare DOM with every bean tree just for XPath
resolution.  We have to do some minimal XPath translation already
(/ejb-jar to /EjbJar and so on), and if we change the beans to differ
significantly from the XML format, we'll either have to do significantly
more complex translation, or carry around the original DOM for XPath
