The problem is that the DOM L1 doesn't have any standardized way of
doing this (as far as I can see).  DOM L2 does, through
Document.importNode, but PyDOM doesn't support that.

Possible solutions:

  - make a function that creates a copy of the node with a different
    owner document (something like copy_to(document, node))

  - do a direct assignment to node._document (ouch!)

  - implement Document.importNode yourself from the information in
    <URL: http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-2/core.html > and post a
    patch here

  - use 4DOM?
