[jdom-interest] speed of DOM vs JDOM

JDOM is clearly less memory intensive than DOM, but are there any
preliminary numbers or thoughts on the speed of it's document access in
comparison to DOM?  For example, how much faster is it for JDOM to find
specific tags or attributes?  I'm trying to decide whether or not a JDOM to
DOM conversion (via DOMOutputter)is worth the additional speed (if any) JDOM
will provide in document creation/traversal.

Thanks in advance,
