I thought the problem might be something like that.  If it's not too  
much trouble to support calling .getAnnotation() on the Element as  
well, however, I would appreciate the patch.  In my case, the  
annotations in question properly belong on the Element, not the Type  
corresponding to the element.  Plus I wouldn't have to change my  
code. :)
