Actually, it turns out that I've been more busy with a new job, a move
across the country (yes, U-Haul is a moving adventure!), and a new
edition of a book. Python 2 hasn't got enough attention either: I hope to
fix that this weekend. I have some known bugs that I need to fix and test
suites to write so that we won't have any more in the future.

I'll think about this. If you need Python to use PyXML, what's the point
of putting minidom in both places?
