Yay! Now we're getting somewhere. Store it however you like; I vaguely
remember char[] being quicker to write() but I could be smoking crack.

Your reasoning about avoiding networking bugs makes perfect sense.  As
long as it's settable, and as long as the setLineEnding() Javadoc
contains the following code, I withdraw my objections.

	For reasons X,Y,Z (Rusty fill in here), XMLOutputter uses \r\n
	by default.  If you need a
	different line-ending string, set it here.  If you need to
	output files conforming to the line-ending conventions of the
	local operating system, use

Heh, I just called English "code"... :-)
