I have a patch ready (http://bugs.python.org/issue1399) that adds an XML
codec. This codec implements encoding detection as specified in
http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-xml-20040204/#sec-guessing and could be
used for the decoding phase of an XML parser. Other use cases are:
The codec could be used for transcoding an XML input before passing it
to the real parser, if the parser itself doesn't support the encoding in
A text editor could use the codec to decode an XML file. When the user
changes the XML declaration and resaves the file, it would be saved in
the correct encoding.
I'd like to have this codec in 2.6 and 3.0.
