[jdom-interest] writing XML to a String

I wanted to use XMLOutputter to output a Document to a String/StringBuffer,
which would then be wrapped up in a larger message by another system
component and sent off somewhere.

Unfortunately output() can only use a print stream, and java.io only
provides a StringWriter and no OutputStream -> Writer class.  I have a
feeling I'm missing something obvious - anyone have a suggestion?

Alternatively, does the latest cvs build now have an output(Writer) method?
(I know the javadocs aren't totally in sync with builds).
