[jdom-interest] FilterList and adjacent Text nodes

Just noticed that adjacent Text nodes won't be concatenated together when
added to a FilterList (addContent() works fine).

     List l = element.getContent(); // really returns a FilterList
     l.add( new Text( "test 1"));
     l.add( new Text( "test 2"));

I looked at modifying FilterList and the filters, but FilterList only knows
about java.lang.Object and Filter doesn't know about siblings in the list
so I gave up on that idea.

I don't think it will be a problem in most cases, but if it comes up in the
future it might be something for the FAQ, plus the problem can be avoided
by using addContent().
