dom4j is a fork of JDOM, started by James Strachan because he wanted an
interface-based model with factories for object creation, while Brett
and I (and the majority of people here we believe) didn't want that
complexity.  It used to be called JDOM+ until we pointed out that
violated the JDOM license.  James has added some interesting stuff on
the periphery like event-based building, which I'd like to see added to
