Support for non-string keys when serializing TabularData #97

Up to now, when accessing an MBean attribute of type TabularData with a path, then only string keys are supported for the path attributes.

See this dicussion . This is the spot in the source.

Since we already know how to convert a string to an OpenType this should be a big deal, however, at this place we unfortunately don't have access to this string-to-object converter.

For the short term (1.1.2), I'll add (and somewhat duplicate) conversion string-to-simple type in the TabularDataExtractor.

For the mid to long term (2.0) I'm doing quite some refactoring in order to improve modularity. Here it will be possible for the TabularDataExtractor to access the other converters, too and hence can convert any open type from a string.

Quick fix for #97 to support more types than strings when using a path.
This fix will be reconsidered for 2.0 where we hopefully will have the original
string-to-object converter in place within the TabularData extractor so that
the code doesn't need to be duplicated and more types will be supported.
