I had done something like it a little before DigestingPlugin was 
committed, but it faced the challenge that LabelValueBean didn't have 
a no-arg constructor, and so was hard to use with Digester.

In case the commits weren't announcement enough, I changed the 
example application so that instead of creating the "serverTypes" 
list of LVBs in the MemoryDatabasePlugIn, that list is now created by 
the DigestingPlugIn.

When I have some more time, I'll look for a place in the walking tour 
to add some information, although work is about to get real busy 

How would people feel about putting the XML digester rules for the 
label value beans into the Struts JAR?  I can see the argument that 
it's not really core, and I wouldn't fight about it, but I can see 
where it would be convenient.  For now, I just put it in WEB-INF, 
which makes the struts-config a little cleaner (because I changed 
DigestingPlugIn to default to looking in the servlet context if the 
"source" of either the data XML or digester XML is not specified).
