[jdom-interest] Preparing for JDOM 2.0.3

Hi All.

A few issues have been identified in JDOM over the past few weeks. When 
the first issue was resolved (unable to serialize subclasses of Element 
outside org.jdom2 package) I promised to release 2.0.3 over this past 
weekend, but a second (low priority) issue was identified (lack of 
support for specific JAXP factory).

Additionally, 'Canadian Wilf' showed interest in improving the 
performance of the Verifier code. As a result, I have been working with 
Wilf to get the Verifier code 'fast'.

Taken together, it all means that I have 'slipped' this release date...

Right now the performance changes have been completed successfully, with 
the Verifier now running in about one third of the time it used to. This 
speeds up parsing considerably. THere is a wiki page documenting the 
process here: https://github.com/hunterhacker/jdom/wiki/Verifier-Performance

I have just built the 'hotfix' package containing all fixes since JDOM 
2.0.2 and posted it to github here: 

I intend to release the full 2.0.3 package on this coming weekend 
(slipping the 2.0.3 release date by 1 week).

Thanks & Happy Coding
