Well, here's a hint. The file almost all of them are retrieving is
/topics/xml/dtds/xbel-1.0.dtd. They're all being redirected to
pyxml.sf.net, though. It's a lot of hits, but www.python.org doesn't
serve any actual pages, so the actual load is not that big (at least,
not for us :-) It skewes the statistics somewhat, maybe I should
ignore the whole /topics/xml tree in the stats.
