div.extend(seq) can be trivially rewritten as

     div[len(div):] = seq

and in this case, you know that len(div) is 0, so you can simply do:

     div[:] = seq

(this recent lxml habit of using lxml-specific versions of things that 
are trivial to do with the standard API is a bit disappointing.  kind of 
defeats the purpose of having a standard API...)
