Your module is very similar to the jaxml
(http://cortex.unice.fr/~jerome/jaxml/) module I've written, in fact you
use an even simpler solution than me, who didn't know the __call__

The main difference is that my module fully buffers its output, and
allows a different method to deeply imbricate tags.

I suppose I'll reuse parts of your code, thanks !
