[jdom-interest] method variable names

JDOM uses descriptive names everywhere, check the source. The signature of
Element's constructor is:

public Element(String name, Namespace namespace)

I think JBuilder is giving you its API help based on the .class files in
JDOM's JAR, which don't contain parameter names. I'm not a JBuilder user,
but there's probably some way to point it at the source or the JavaDoc so it
can find out these names.
