That would be great for framework developers as well.

Anyone with thoughts on this? To elaborate, here's what I have in
EntityMapping mapping = session.addEntityMapping();
mapping.entity( Person.class )
.table( "PERSONS" )
.property( "personId" )
.strategy( Strategy.IDENTITY )
.property( "phoneNumbers" )
.mappedBy( "person" )
.property( "favouriteColor" )
.converter( ColorConverter.class );
I'm curious whether others think that'd be useful or not.
Vlad, perhaps you have any insights from the field?
