"Based [_in spirit_] on [ESIS from] sgmls and nsgmls."
The parsers on the Pyx site are expat and rxp ('xmln' and 'xmlv';
non-validating and validating, respectively), so they are fast and
Pyx's ESIS puts attributes (A-lines) after the elements instead of
before (see the FAQ for why). I recall patches for nsgmls somewhere
but they're not on the Pyx site.
