> Rickard added the support for handling Associations in Values, and we also now have the
full support of sharing super-types between Entities and Values.
> So, it would make sense that if I declare the assembly;
>     module.entities( Person.class );
>     module.values( Person.class );
> that I could do;
>     Person entity = ...;
>     Person value = api.toValue( Person,class, entity );
> as well as the other way around;
>     Person value = ...;
>     Person entity = api.toEntity( Person.class, entity );
> The implementation of this is fairly small and straight forward, and I have most of it
in place in my project already, but I think it really belongs in the API itself, as this would
be super-neat for Rest APIs and other work outside of UnitOfWorks.
