So what I did earlier does not work for Collections.  Collections go 
through a very different code path (even ElementCollection which i found 
very odd).  That code does not use the pieces of PropertyBinder and 
SimpleValueBinder that got changed.

Even more oddly, the only time I see uses of 
PropertyBinder/SimpleValueBinder from collections are for many-to-many 
Or is this just a badly named method that really handles more that just
