I've been following some of it, and probably spoke a little rashly in some circumstances

OK ... just wanted to make sure we weren't missing a useful use case.

It should be feasible to share this.  The needs look to be reasonably similar.

I recently refactored this family of classes to have no dependencies on other Struts
APIs (or even on servlet APIs for that matter).  Future enhancement plans include
support for PropertyEditor classes (to let apps customize the property<-->String
translations necessary when going to and from an HTML page) and bean properties that are
Collections (treating them sort of like indexed or array-based properties), which would
also benefit both Velocity and Struts.
