I think there are some good reasons why the "new" gnosis.xml.pickle is
organized into a package namespace. And there are some new capabilities
and modularity that go along with that.
However, the "old" xml_pickle (use the latest such one, labelled 0.51)
can be fixed up for Python 2.2 by adjusting two uses of dir(). That
built-in function changed meaning in Python 2.2--or at least it changed
behavior. Just replace occurrences of 'dir(obj)' with
'obj.__dict__.keys()', and I'm pretty sure all will be well.
Yours, David (the xml_pickle guy)...
