Don't worry about that; patch 101634 has that function (as well as a
number of other bug fixes).

I've also installed the following bug fixes:

- Makefile.in: install xml/parsers, not xml/parser
- test_sax.py: Don't assume that test.xml[.out] is in the current directory.

If you are reasonably certain that it at least compiles and does not
otherwise break anything unless actually used --- then I'd say just
check it in.

I still had preferred if these features (EntityResolver, DTDHandler)
wouldn't not be rushed into Python 2.0, 6 hours before the deadline of
the last beta release...
