While fixing the other issues, I was thinking about a few things. Nearly
all methods in the Connector class are public, not protected. The
mutators are the only dangerous methods and they must be public so that
the Digester can set them during Connector configuration.

Is there a compelling reason to make the isParseBodyMethod method
protected? Or, is that simply considered an implementation detail that
should be hidden from the public API?

I'm open to either strategy.
