If  there is any intention of running this on App Engine, you won't be able
to do that.  One thing that people are a little disappointed about App
Engine is your python libraries have to be pure python and can't have C
extensions, so this might fail (unless you get lucky and lxml is installed
on the linux distribution that they're using for the App Engine servers, but
my guess is probably not).

Fortunately this looks like it'd be easy to convert to use BeautifulSoup,
which is pure Python.
