fluent_api should honour annotate plugin's setter-parameter annotations

Hey all,

I'm not sure how to raise a feature request with our fluent_api, so I'm mailing. I'd like to request that the fluent 'withXXX' methods added to the generated classes should honour any setter-parameter annotations


<complexType name="SomeType">
        <element name="key" type="string" nillable="true">
                    <annox:annotate target="setter-parameter">@javax.annotation.Nullable</annox:annotate>
                    <annox:annotate target="getter">@javax.annotation.Nullable</annox:annotate>

Currently generates:

public class SomeType {


    public void setKey(@Nullable String value) {...}

    public SomeType withKey(String value) {...}


It would be really useful if the fluent_api plugin added the @Nullable annotation to the 'withKey's parameter.

If I need to raise this some other way, then please let me know...
