[jdom-interest] API suggestion

What about a factory method in org.jdom.Element that creates an element and sets its
text all in one go.

public static Element createElement(String name,String text)
  Element e=new Element(name);
  return e;

Then, one could replace code that looks like the following:

Element e=new Element("somename").setText("somevalue");


Element e=Element.createElement("somename","somevalue");

Basically just as a convenience method for programmers that need to create a lot of
elements with text but no attributes.
