 * With a java.beans.PropertyEditor, you can go way beyond the built-in
 * types that OpenEJB supports and can extend dependency injection to
 * just about anywhere.
 * <p/>
 * In the world of electric guitars, two types of pickups are used: humbucking, and single-coil.
 * Guitarists often refer to their guitars as HSS, meaning a guitar with 1 humbucker and
 * 2 single coil pickups, and so on.  This little PropertyEditor supports that shorthand notation.
