[jdom-interest] Replace Element?

	I know it's not possible with the current API, but is
it possible to replace a element with a new element *without*
effecting the order in which elements are stored?  We're
having a problem where elements (children) at the same level
are being processed, deleted, and added again.  The problem
is when they are added, the original order of the children 
is being mucked up.  The 'new' element (aka, the processed
element) is being added to the end of the list, instead of 
where the original element sat.  The effect is obvious and
intended with the API as it stands now.  However, is there 
any reason a replaceElement can't be added?  I've looked
through the code and it looks feasible, but the PartialList
implementation may cause an issue.  I don't really 
understand it well enough to know what effect mucking with
children will have on the backingList.  Any ideas?
