[BangPypers] parsing xml

I have nothing more to say than this(as i see some tangential replies which
i am not interested in substantiating - for eg, i never suggested to use a
regexp based parser - a regexp based xml parser is different from using 'a'
regexp on a string!!!!!) :

Read my replies properly. Read my assumptions properly w.r.t the xml
structure and the requested value in the xml.  Read the link that you have
pasted again. If possible, read the comments in the link shared(from esr)
again.  Once done, think twice and tell me which is better. If you vouch for
xml parsing in the case when all that you need from the string is a simple
numeric value(not a string), then good luck; unlike esr i will not use
adjectives; but i would not use your code either.
