I would like to remove all content from a XWPFTableCell. But there seems to be no way of doing this.

I can remove paragraphs from a XWPFTableCell, by using the removeParagraph(int pos) method, but then I am left with 2 problems:

* the removeParagraph(int pos) method does not change the "bodyElements" member, which gives problems when later getBodyElements() is called, since the removed paragraph is still in the list
* I am unable to remove other content from the XWPFTableCell, like for example a XWPFTable

As workaround I currently set all the runs of all the paragraphs to the text "" and I remove all the TableRows of every XWPFTable that is in the cell. The problem with this workaround is that I end up with a lot of "enters" in the document.
