Check out qp_xml in the CVS repository (in the utils directory). If you
don't want to grab it from there, you can also pick it up from my web
It uses PyExpat (and Expat) to quickly parse XML into some *very*
lightweight data structures that your application can use. Quick, easy,
qp_xml works very well for data management. Document handling,
translation, and processing is also fine, but the DOM may be more
appropriate in those situations.
I use qp_xml for the XML parsing in my WebDAV client library.
