Oh, absolutely.  On re-reading I wasn't clear.  I definitely think the way to 
go is to write a SAX or SAX2 driver, which can be dropped in throughout the 
Python/XML tools.  This would trulky kick arse because then we'd have a beta 
Schema implementation for Python.

Great idea.  Let us know when you start working on it.  If we're done with 
4DOM->XML-SIG by then we'll probably be able to help.
