Hi Stuart,

That's an RFE I have often wished for :-)

I've been wondering whether a static method
in the class java.util.Collections would be better, since there
already are some conversion methods there - like:

public static <T> Enumeration<T> emptyEnumeration();
public static <T> Enumeration<T> enumeration(final Collection<T> c);
public static <T> ArrayList<T> list(Enumeration<T> e);

but I see that Brian already commented in the bug that he
preferred the default method on Iterator...

I like the examples in the API documentation of the new method.
Looks good to me!

best regards,

-- daniel
