Many classes are just extending BaseModelMBean and do nothing ( all those
with around 4k size :-).

For all others - I think we should try to move the method implementation
in the real code, and keep using 'plain' modeler.

I don't think the interface needs to change - the modeler wraps the real
object and uses introspection on it. 

That means attributes in CoyoteConnector should be visible without need
to have them in Connector. If not, we should fix modeler to allow this.
