I'm forwarding this message to python-list, since I didn't get answer on 
xml-sig ML. Hopefully this is right list to question.

I have concerns about PyXML and stdlib xml included directly in python.
Currently (in Fedora) python is trying to import PyXML, which means
other results when you have and haven't PyXML installed.
Furthermore, python's xml provides "dom", "parsers", "sax" and "etree".
PyXML provides  'dom', 'marshal', 'parsers', 'sax', 'schema', 'utils',
'xpath' and 'xslt'. Some modules are duplicated. Does PyXML provides
more functionality in those modules? Is python's xml better, same or
worse then PyXML? Anyway, python's xml is newer - is PyXML deprecated?

Please keep me in CC, I'm not subscribed to the list.
