Python version of XMLUnit?

I have found XMLUnit to be very helpful for testing Java and Jython code
that generates XML. At its heart XMLUnit is an XML-aware diff - it
parses expected and actual XML and pinpoints any differences. It is
smart enough to ignore things like attribute order, different quoting
and escaping styles, and insignificant whitespace.
Now I am working on a CPython project and have a similar need. Is there
any comparable tool for Python? Basically I'm looking for a tool to
compare XML and show diffs in an intelligible fashion that is usable
from Python unit tests (using py.test, if it matters).
