[jdom-interest] Text class

I think it would be neat to extend the StringBuffer class, just add
package org.jdom;
public class Text extends StringBuffer {
  public String getValue() {
    return super.toString();
This way we get append() plus all of the other string manipulation calls
with little or no more overhead than simply encapsulating a StringBuffer

	Here's where we're at:
	public class Text {
	    private StringBuffer value;
	    protected Text() { }
	    public Text(String stringValue) {
	        value = new StringBuffer(stringValue);
	    public String getValue() {
	        return value.toString();
	    public void setValue(String stringValue) {
	        value = new StringBuffer(stringValue);
	    public void append(String stringValue) {
	    public String toString() {
	        return getValue();
	    public int hashCode() {
	        return value.toString().hashCode();
	    // Leaving out impl for now on below here
	    public boolean equals(Object ob);
	OK. Now we can discuss. What you think?
