 * Utility class to call methods through reflection, and falls through using the <code>Invoker to call the method if it fails.
 * The class is particularly useful for Groovy classes implementing <code>GroovyInterceptable,
 * since it is not possible to call any method from this class,
 * because it is intercepted by the <code>invokeMethod() method.
