[jdom-interest] JDOM not using raw typing

This has been discussed a lot lately.  The reason is to add support for 
Java 5 means removing support for people on Java versions previous to 
that.  You can make two releases, but that has the potential to cause 
dependency problems in larger projects.  So for now you have a few 
warnings as the price for Java 1.4 people to be able to use JDOM.  :)
