That's the one.  (memory was a bit stale)

We could probably do something like that.  XBean does have the ability  
for the parameter names to be feed to it, rather than getting them  
magically.  So we could support something like this if we make a quick  
check for the annotation ourselves.  We could probably make our own  
copy of @java.beans.ConstructorProperties and put it in a new spec jar  
for java 5 usage.
