if it is, then adding it to the standard library won't help unless it
includes a driver for xmllib (at which point you may as well just use

  This reminds me:  I still want to look at xml.parsers.xmllib to make 
the interface match that of xmllib.  While I may complain about
namespaces and the interface for them, proliferating incompatible
