lxml's toolbox is actually larger than that. There's also lxml.objectify
which provides a Python object interface to the XML tree, similar to what
data binding would give you. And you can stick your own Element object
implementations into it if you feel a need to simplify the API itself
and/or adapt it to a given document format.
