[jdom-interest] XMLOutputter problem

If I'm to make an assumption about Alex's problem, there are meaningless
blank lines added to the document when it's saved. I think he wants the
newlines and the indent because he wants it to be pretty for a human. I have
the same problem but didn't care enough to ask about it. In my app, I have a
little class to merge several web.xml files and I get output like this:
<!-- A Comment -->
See the blank lines occurring before the close tag? I think that's what he's
talking about. If he's not, then hey, anyone know how to solve this problem?
I'm using b7 and haven't tried pulling the latest code.

Your passing "true" indicates you want newlines added. Don't pass
true. You probably don't want to pass " " for the indent either. Just
use the default XMLOutputter constructor.
