Based on that little example, I nominate Dave as author of the Advanced 
Guide to OGNL ;-)

That said, stanlick, what you wrote should do exactly what you were 
probably expecting. If not, post what you expected vs. what you got and 
any relevant supporting details (what someMap is, what someKey is,
