JDOM with generics was discussed on the list a while back.
What was said then (as I remember it) was that we need to get a 1.0.1 
release out first, with a couple of submitted patches.
After that, we could aim for a generics relase. Preferrabley, first a 
1.5 release that is binary compatible with 1.0, and later maybe a 2.0 
that breaks compatibility, using a different package name.

I haven't lookded at your code, but I assume it is made from the 1.0 
sources. (Therefore I cannot use it, since I need one of the patches 
mentioned above).
