python-xml is not part of the standard library!  It's PyXML.

Blame this on whomever thought it was a good idea for the standard 
library to be "extended" by some third party package when present.  If 
you had PyXML, you would be able to import _xmlplus (this is the awful 
hack they use to inject stuff into the xml namespace).
