I am afraid, there is no native way of saving an XMLConfiguration in a 
pretty-printed way.

In the very early days, before the first release, we had used dom4j for 
handling XML documents. But then we decided to drop this dependency 
because it did not gain us such a big benefit, and our dependency list 
was already pretty long.

So in short I think, your suggestion to apply an external formatter to 
the wrapped Document is a good strategy.
