I don't see any reason not to use OutputStreamWriter.  I just used
PrintWriter cuz, hey, I'm a servlet guy.  :-)

Elliotte, if you want to take care of this, that'd be great.  Either a
patch or a new copy of the file is fine.  Otherwise I'll do it next
chance I get.  Meanwhile, while we have the "I/O" guy listening, why the
hell does PrintWriter *not* throw IOException?
