The pyexpat module has now been checked in to the Python CVS tree, and
a little test suite that exercises most (I hope all) of the handlers
has been added.  There's still one more change I'd like to make: the

ExternalEntityRef) returns the wrong thing is very unclear.

Anyway, could those of you who follow the Python CVS tree please try
it out and report any problems?  Thanks...

follow with the XML-SIG.  Currently I'm leaning toward making a 0.5.4
release that's compatible with 1.5.2, and then starting a 0.6 branch
that can use 1.6-only features.  (Mostly this is because I don't want
to drag wstrop around, given that 1.6a1 has different Unicode
