OK, I'm told that there was a decision made last November that attributes
defined by DOM are mapped to both Python attributes and accessor functions.

This means that DOM clients can use either "direct attribute access":


or an accessor method:


An implementor of the Python DOM API must support both
methods of access.

I don't personally like this API very much, but I guess it's
to late to change it.
