Hello, all --

I am running the XML package in conjunction with JPython. Since the JPython
site states that a lot of the Python capability is found within JPython, I
decided not to install Python.

However, the parser search capability within saxexts depends upon the import
functionality found in imp. As imp is not implemented in JPython, I am
forced to install Python just to get the ability to search for a parser.

Is my understanding correct? While memory is not an issue, this seems to be
adding unnecessary complexity to the JPython environment build process.
