The one big thing I'd like would be if the various things that return
Collections would return parameterised values instead of the base
classes that they return right now. For example, Element.getChildren()
is actually even documented to return a List of Elements, but the
return type is plain old List. It would be nice if that were
List<Element> instead, so you wouldn't need to cast all the time.
