[jdom-interest] jdom and dom4j

Sorry, if you think the language is inflammatory.  It was meant to be.  I have much respect for both groups (JDOM and dom4J) work that has allowed developes like myself to profit (metaphorically, of course).  But this was not a debate of design or implementation pros and cons.  And with the exception of Alex's comments, it was a whiny "my code is better than yours" thread.

Hmm, I thought I was being pretty level-headed. If I wasn't, do you really think your comments like that would help?

Any group collaboration is going to have conflict, especially when it's conducted over e-mail and not in person. An occasional "hey, let's get back on track here" could be helpful, but not this crap.
