Done. Example added to cvs.

Draft done and committed to CVS. The changes were compiled with the 
help of jdiff and a log of "cvs log" and "cvs diff" work :-)

Done. No issues were found.

Done. Collections 3.0 works fine.

Done. Will be postponed until next release.


So, on to the still-to-do list:

* add cvs-version info in somehow [see later]
After reviewing Robert and Craig's emails, it seems that there is a
preference there for the version info to be higher up - maybe even
within the copyright comments at the top of the file. Is this allowed?
If so, can we run with it? I'm happy with this, though I do think my
(admittedly slightly unusual) suggestion of putting it on the *last*
line of the file also has merit. Maybe just too unexpected, though.

* run checkstyle?
* check there is a "src" distribution, and that it includes the examples
* set up wiki for digester, add ref from digester website to it.
* check code with java1.2 SDK (this is the minimum java version, right?)
* Robert's changes to logging?
* put in some more @since tags?
* finishing touches to release notes.
