The fepy version is incomplete, but it mostly works. I haven't run the
tests in a while, though, so I'm not sure how incomplete it is. I'm
also unsure if we can get 100% compatibility using System.Xml; much
like sqlite, it may have to p/invoke the C expat lib for perfect

pyexpat is one of the last builtin modules not included (I should be
able to land _ast this weekend and unicodedata "soon"). If anyone
sends a pull request with the majority of the tests passing, I'd be
very happy to include it.

I don't think so.
