As usual, the problem with minidom is figuring out what to do about
cyclic trash! I was expecting cyclic garbage collection to get into 1.6
but that seems up in the air right now.

Why don't I clean up a version of minidom that doesn't have parent
pointers by default and we'll "turn on" the parent pointers if we get
cyclic trash collection into 1.6.
