[jdom-interest] method variable names

Just a quick one, The names that have been used in the methods for 
the JDOM library are a bit obscure. eg p0 and p1 for the constructor 
of a new element.

The reason I would bother to bring this up is when using a program 
such as jbuilder it brings up the method name plus the variable types 
and their associated names. So sometimes rather than having to look 
in the API documentation I can basically sift through the methods etc 
and based on the names you can gather exactly what the method will do.

So for example rather than p0 and p1 it could be propertyName and 
propertyValue ??

Just thought I would drop you a line and let you know anyway.
