It's the version that came with JAXP 1.1.  It was shipped by Sun, not
Apache, and the version number was a little unclear when we tried to
determine it.

Personally, my first priority on JDOM is to figure out how to handle the
remaining TODO items.  It'd be great if someone could volunteer to
qualify the new versions of the various JARs.  That person would need to
try them on their system, ensure the jdom-test cases pass, and after the
update work with people on the list to solve problems as they arise. 
Sean, how do you feel about being the JDOM lib update man?
