it's crufty and lacking in unit tests but the main issue is that it's 
lacks an implementation of the crucial populate method.

there are some discussion here - this is 
crucial feature of users of struts who need i18n support.

i've applied bits of the original patch but i think that the later 
suggestions are better, with LocaleBeanUtilsBean.populate(Object bean, 
Map properties, Locale locale) seeming more natural to me. the 
localizable version needs to act like the standard version (which maps 
properties on the bean) but should use the localized converters.

if you've any questions, please fire away.
