Python AST as XML

maybe of some interest:

XML can be considered as an external representation of in-memory
tree-like structures, and XML-related standards — as methods of
processing such data. Some types of applications may benefit
from this approach. One of the examples are compilers with
theirs parse trees.

The Pysch distribution contains an example of representing Python
parse trees (abstract syntax trees, AST) as XML and applying an
XSLT transformation to these trees.

At the moment the whole code should be considered as a toy,
not as a production version. Anyway, it works.
