We do get the odd question on the user list about Struts 1.0 - but the vast
majority are about 1.1 or 1.2. Whether theres a big corporate silent majority
still stuck on 1.0, though I have no idea.
I agree with you - I've never had the need for a Map that also has properties.
I also think the decision was taken in BeanUtils 1.6 that its going to work on
the principle that "if its a Map, its always treated as a Map" and there isn't
a good reason for catering for anything else. Plus as you point out,
the "beanification" of BeanUtils means that if for example a Struts user has to
have a different behaviour such as this, they can override it and plug in a
different BeanUtilsBean implementation.
