Note that there is a difference in behaviour, though. lxml.etree forces
Elements to be uniquely positioned in a tree, so the code I posted relies on
the "side effect" of automatically removing an Element from the old position
when inserting it at a different place. ElementTree does not do that, so this
code is not portable between the two libraries.
