This is effectively the same as what I do. I assume you're using the 'value'
in LabelValueBean as the value to be submitted, and the 'label' as a string
that sits beside the checkbox? The elements of my collections are typically
more complex than LabelValueBean, because I'm building multi-column tables,
but in essence, it's the same thing.
