it was simply impossible to import xml.dom any longer. xml.sax
was still working. I closed my PyWin session, started over and
it was alive again. I don't know how to reproduce this yet,
but it happened the second time. Some combination of trying
this driver and that one... I need to turn my session logger
on forever, then I can see what I did.

I think there is something more. When I pass a file object to my
Indenter (which is basically similar to Normalizer) and later
delete that file, also delete all instances of handlers which
I created, the file doesn't get closed. There is something sticky
which keeps references alive.
