| 1. Create a new package in the standard library, with the following
| __init__ # provides parse(), parseFile(),
| # and Document
| minidom # Paul's basic DOM 1 + namespaces
| # implementation
| ??? # driver to load a DOM from a SAX parser?
Should be there, I think. Little point in having a DOM implementation
that can't load from XML documents.
| expat # Python Expat wrapper with namespace
| # support
IMHO we should use the namespace support that is built-in to expat.
Anything else is bound to slow us down.
| __init__ # provides parse(), parseFile(), and
| # some classes from the handler module
Whoops! parseFile() no longer exists! We now use the InputSource class
| saxutils # pretty much the same as now
Probably not. There's a lot of SAX 1.0 legacy there now. That would
need to be removed.
The basic structure looks good to me, however.
