You know, this question has come up a bunch of times, but I've never seen any
good responses.

If I've got a form in which users enter contact information, the first time the
user sees it, I'd like to set the default values for the form to whatever I know
about the user.

Since I already have a User object, I would think that the best place to do this
would be in the reset() method of the ActionForm, but there's no way to pass the
ActionForm the User object (or any information that's not part of the form)!  In
the end, I've just grabbed the Form bean from the pageContext and called a
setUser() method so that the reset() method will have something to pull data

Am I missing something?  Is there a better way to do this?
