That is my point.

If you don't want to learn xmlproc, then just don't. I just completed
writing a book on Python that also talks about XML, and I did not
mention the xmlproc API with a single line of text - I claim there
only is SAX and DOM in Python.

core.py is not part of the PyXML CVS anymore; 4DOM now is. In
addition, Python 2.0 includes minidom, which also appears to be fully

In any case: What was your specific complaint about core.py?
