Henry, you may have heard that there is a lot of activity going on with
regards to Python and XML. One of the things we will be doing is
embedding a C toolkit. Would LT XML be appropriate for that? That
question has a couple of parts:

 * can the software be released under a license as free as Python's?
 * do you know whether it is as fast as James Clark's tokenizer?
 * is it written in ANSI C?

We are primarily interested in a parser at this point, so if the answer
for the parser alone is different from that for the whole toolkit, that
would be worth knowing.
