NO NO NO A THOUSAND TIMES NO! This is not a good idea. It does not 
feel good to me. The current behavior is by far the most intuitive. 
We should keep it. If it's really too surprising to people (I don't 
think it is) then we should delete this method. But JDOM should not 
be making implicit assumptions about how to intermingle text with 
child elements.
