Summary: xml.AttributesImpl: __setitem__ undef.

Initial Comment:
[please CC 120343@bugs.debian.org on replies; the 
complete report can be seen at 
http://bugs.debian.org/120343]

xml.sax.xmlreader.AttributesImpl does not have a 
__setitem__ defined.
The definition is trivial (or AttributesImpl could be 
written to extend
UserDict), but its lack is a minor annoyance when 
writing an XML filter.

Why is this a bug? The Attributes interface in SAX is
inherently read-only, both in Java and in Python. For a
filter, write a new dictionary containing all the values
that you want to forward, and create an AttributesImpl
instance from this dictionary.
