Bidirectional binding with conversion

What about adding:
public void bindBidirectional(Property<?> other, StringConverter)
as well? The StringConverter is in javafx.util and seems like another well suited means for conversion to/from String.
One other question not directly related -- why do our bindBidirectional methods take a Property instead of a WritableValue?
