At IPC10, I discussed with Fred a strategy for incorporating Expat
1.95.2 into Python. I've now implemented most of this, consisting of:

- adding the lib/ directory of Expat as Modules/expat
- changing setup.py to build the included Expat library into the
  extension module
- likewise for PCbuild/pyexpat.dsp
- dropping support for older Expat versions from pyexpat (support for
  older Python version is still maintained)

AFAICT, the only missing part is to add the relevant changes to
Modules/Setup.in, and to update various documentation files.

Please make sure to pick up new directories when updating your CVS

If you find any problems with that change, please let me know.
