Note that to get elementsoap working with the ElementTree in the stdlib, 
you need to make a few changes.  See the thread here:

   http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-list/2006-October/366522.html

Fredrik Lundh suggested that some of elementsoap should probably be 
rewritten with the iterparse API, but I haven't had time to do that (and 
likely won't for a while).

That all said, I'd agree that elementsoap is probably the right route to go.
