Here's a question that we should answer before the beta:

With the introduction of the xmlcore package in Python 2.5, should we document 
xml.etree or xmlcore.etree?  If someone installs PyXML with Python 2.5, I 
don't think they're going to get xml.etree, which will be really confusing.  
We can be sure that xmlcore.etree will be there.

I'd rather not propogate the pain caused "xml" package insanity any further.
