What about xml.dom.pulldom? It quite possibly resembles ElementTree's
iterparse, or at least promotes event-style handling of XML information
using some kind of mainloop...
for etype, node in xml.dom.pulldom.parseString(s):
if etype == xml.dom.pulldom.START_ELEMENT:
print node.nodeName, node.attributes
...instead of callbacks (as happens with SAX):
def startElement(self, name, attrs):
print name, attrs
