[jdom-interest] way to not print namespaces?

I decided to go with extending XMLOutputter,  but like you said, there's *way* too many private methods that have to be copied over just to do a simple modification.   I might be doing something weird as well, as now my XML is getting extra newlines.  I remember this from jdom b7, but i'm using the same source that I made the jar file from, and when i run Ident on the jar file, the CVS version matches the version on the source.

I can live with it for now, but if anyone knows what I did wrong please let me know.  I'll include the source, in case anyone wants a base point for extending XMLOutputter.
