You can turn that off with the -public option for the JavaDoc command, 
which restricts the output to public classes and members.

I guess I prefer to be able to make that choice for myself.  Loop counters 
are uninteresting, yes, but the heavy use of private in packages like XT

it's not relevant, it shouldn't be in the doc...
