Hi Bill,

I am looking into resolving issue #61 ( ) and while the purpose behind StringConverter.fromString(...) method is clear to me (we have a very similar concept in Jersey too), I'm not clear about the purpose of the StringConterter.toString(...) method. Is it really used? What do you use it for?

Right now it seems to me that the fromString part should cover the use cases alone. Or am I missing something?
