Issue 44: Optional values for _at_*Param

Should we make the value of @*Param annotations optional when used
with fields and bean properties. E.g. should:

@QueryParam String foo;

be equivalent to:

@QueryParam("foo") String foo;

Unfortunately this won't work on method parameters since their names
are not preserved in class files.

Seems like a reasonable shortcut to me but, as I haven't found
specifying the value particularly irksome so far, I don't have a
strong opinion either way.

Opinions ?
