[New-bugs-announce] [issue24724] Element.findall documentation misleading
report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Eric S:
Element.findall() finds only elements with a tag which are direct children of the current element.
More accurate to say "direct descendents" as "direct children" implies only one generation below whereas function goes down to all g...children. For-looping findall with inner recursion to rebuild hierarchy as dict, etc. can cause very large tree.
