That's what I told him/her already :)

Rephrasing a famous word:

Being faced with an XML problem, you might think "Ok, I'll just use SAX". And
now you have two problems.

SAX is a great way to hide your real problems behind a wall of unreadable
code. If you want my opinion, lxml is currently the straightest way to get XML
work done in Python.
