for primitive types you can write
Element.addContent("" + primitiveValue); // int, double, boolean, ...

to prepend a empty String ("") isn't much pain i think ;-)
imho your suggestion would unnecessarily boast the JDOM-API.

sure, but those methods would only fit to a certain String-represtation
eg. the project i'm using jdom in, i need to have control of that
> myelement.addContent (System.currentTimeMillis ());
try: myelement.addContent ("" + System.currentTimeMillis ());
and you are done :-)
