    Although I've added some simple unit test cases (based on the existing

The DynaBean set() methods do not throw any exceptions. This makes it
hard (in fact, impossible) for me to layer any exception semantics on
top of the base implementation. For example, in my own implementation
(which "extends BasicDynaBean", but could just as easily be a class
which "implements DynaBean"), I can't enforce a read-only semantic by
way of throwing an exception. Right now, I'm just returning without any
action taken. Kind of silly.
