The problem is that the __init__.py file in .../xml/parsers/xmlproc is a
zero-length file, and winzip decides to be smart and not extract zero-length
files by default, so that your .../xml/parsers/xmlproc folder does not contain
an __init__.py file, which means that it is not recognised as a package, and
hence your error message. Just create an empty __init__.py file in that folder
and all will be well...
