Is that version of xmllib still maintained? I don't see the Python
1.5.2 compatibility issue here - Python 1.5.2 does have xmllib, just
as Python 2.0 does.

I'd rather not add unmaintained software back into the
distribution. Is there a problem to directly use sgmlop? Or,
alternatively, to incorporate the version of xmllib into your
application (preferably under a different name)?
