Yes, that will give you xmlproc, which is a validating parser, and
sgmlop, which is a very fast parser. It will also give you a few
additional SAX drivers that need some external parser.

No, it won't. Instead, it will install into the _xmlplus directory.

Installing PyXML should give you completely compatible
implementations. If you find differences other than bugs being fixed
in PyXML, that would be considered as a bug.
