That is, in itself, a medium-sized project. There are many components
to PyXML, and finding all the authors might be a challenge already.

Some code is outdated, and part of PyXML only to support old
applications; that should not be moved into Python.

Some code is still incomplete. I used to say it's "work in progress",
but for some of it, that isn't really true. Still, there are users
of these pieces as well.

The only parts that I personally would like to see in Python is
some XPath implementation, and some XSLT implementation. Others
might have other preferences, of course.
