Recommendations for Docbook XML transformation with Python?

These days, what is the best way to transform DocBook XML into HTML,
RTF, PDF and other targets using Python? Googling around the topic
throws up a bewildering array of acronyms, but it seem that using
libxml2, libxslt and the libxml2-python bindings might be the best way
forward??? The latest versions of libxml2 and libxslt compiled without
problems (on a RH Linux 8 machine), but setup (compilation and
installation) of the latest libxml2-python binding fails (with Python
2.3.3). Should I persist, or is there a better direction to take?
