Whoa, scary legal stuff ;^)

This has been discussed pretty heavily in the past.  There is not widespread
agreement on the *best* way to do it but it's pretty clear that the
*fastest* way to perform it would be to write a custom
serialization/deserialization method.  Many of the discussions about where
JDOM fits into your program affect this as well.
