      Description

      Method get() of class WTKXSerializer returns value of type Object, you see:
      http://incubator.apache.org/pivot/1.3/docs/api/org/apache/pivot/wtkx/WTKXSerializer.html#get(java.lang.String)

      As demostrated in documentation it cause code like this: (http://incubator.apache.org/pivot/1.3/tutorials/push_buttons.html)
      private PushButton pushButton = null;
      ...
      pushButton = (PushButton)wtkxSerializer.get("pushButton");

      In an alternative way, get() method may be declared as:
      <T> T get(String key)

      { //implementation }

      This way client code will be just:
      pushButton = wtkxSerializer.get("pushButton");

      so the type-case will be implicit. This feature is widely used in HtmlUnit framework and I find it quite neat.
      May be it coult be adopted to pivot project
