[jdom-interest] no getChildTextNormalize() ?

When getChildText() and getChildTextTrim() were added we didn't have the
normalize feature.  They were a little controversial to add, so when we
added the normalize feature, I wasn't eager to propose another.  :-)  It
probably makes sense though.  I at least use the getChildText*() methods
a lot.
