Realistically, here's really no good reason that the aboutbox/easteregg uses
XML at all, except that it's cool. And it's not really correct that jdom.jar
should favor xerces.jar over any other parser. While I'm not *always* in
favor of correct over cool, I think in this case we should go with plan A,
and make the about box just spit out the contents of a text file instead.
