ElementTree and proper identation?

I've been doing a little studying of ElementTree and it doesn't seem 
very satisfactory for writing XML files that are properly 
formatted/indented. I saw on the website that there is an 
indent/prettyprint function, but this isn't listed in the Python docs 
and I didn't see it after doing a dir(), so I guess it isn't a part of 
the Python version.

Did I miss something somewhere else, or can you just not use ElementTree 
to write formatted XML files as they'd look if done by hand?

Thanks.
