I've just uploaded a development snapshot of sgmlop (the
sgmllib/xmllib accelerator plugin) to:


sgmlop is a fast replacement for the regular expression-based
parsers used in the sgmllib/htmllib and xmllib modules.  A single
module supports both SGML and XML.

sgmlop is currently about 5 times faster than the original re-based
implementation provided with Python 1.5.

this snapshot includes source code and a precompiled DLL for
Python 1.5.  building the library on Unix and other platforms
should be straightforward.
