[configuration] Add getXXXArray() methods for all types





------- Additional Comments From epugh@upstate.com  2004-06-16 20:36 -------
I think my only concern about adding these getXXXArray() methods as well as
adding getBooleanList( getBooleans?) is that it makes the API longer and
longer..  Maybe we could have something like a decorator that did this for you?
 We haven't had any posts by people clamouring at the bit for these methods, I'd
rather wait till someone has a real "need" for them..  Something I've noticed in
some of the other commons utiltiy packages is some classes that I can't figure
out when anyone would need them outside of very specific instances..  I'd rather
hit the 80% functionality then go for 100% and have a huge unmanageable
codebase!  We could add a ConvenienceConfiguration that decoarated a regular
configuration and provided these methods, right?
