[jdom-interest] & in namespace

I think that jdom5 is the right idea to avoid conflicts with the
non-generics version.

Technically, I think that what we have now should really be jdom2, or j2dom
if you follow the Java naming conventions.

Considering we're in maintenance mode, it wouldn't be too onerous to
just maintain two branches.  However, I'm not actually worried about
*my* pain so much as each user's.  If we use the same package name for
the Generics version as we have now, isn't that a recipe for DLL hell?
Two completely incompatible versions masquerading as the same thing.

Which is why, in a post a while ago, I wondered if the answer was to do
org.jdom5 packaging or something like that.
