So, now since I'm (in this case) using these XML libraries only through
the high-level ZSI SOAP API, it's still unclear to me whether I can make
any of these substitutions.
I just read through some of the docs for PyXML, and apparently it uses
sgmlop when it can. Is there a flag or a way to determine if it has
actually been found and is being used?
