FWIW, it seems to me that this is something that could live in *tulip*
as an adapter between the tulip data processing APIs and the existing
ElementTree incremental parsing APIs, without needing to be added
directly to xml.etree at all.

It certainly seems premature to be adding tulip-inspired APIs to other
parts of the standard library, when tulip itself hasn't been deemed
ready for inclusion.
