New submission from patrick vrijlandt <patrick.vrijlandt at gmail.com>:

>From the python docs for version 3.2:

19.12.3. ElementTree Objects
[...] Same as getroot().find(match). [...]

This is not true: tree.find accepts an absolute path (like "/*") , whereas element.find doesn't. Also applies to findall and findtext.
