[XML-SIG] Python DOM Unification -- level
Mon, 26 Apr 1999 15:27:53 -0500
Following are some meta-questions on the proposed Python DOM unification.
First, what is the appropriate level of unification?
* Module level:
from xml import minidom
dom = minidom
else if sys.argv=="complete":
from xml import dom
else if sys.argv=="distributed":
from 4thought import dom
* Builder level:
from 4thought.dom import sax_builder()
from xml.dom import sax_builder()
xml.dom.FromXML( sax_builder() )
* Document level:
My preference is for "Builder level", I think. Portable helper functions
could go into a universal xml.dom package instead of into each package.

Yoda is not a Furby. Well, not exactly.
"This is an interactive toy that utilizes Furby technology,"
Simon said. "It will react to its surroundings and will talk."
