  I was never aware that the wstring material was actually used in
PyXML, other than being present.  Well, given Andrew's comments, I'll
not worry about 1.5.2 compatibility either.
  Since we're not worrying about pre-2.0 versions, perhaps pyexpat
should be removed?  It's in the core library, and the only thing that
PyXML should need to pick it up is the xml.parsers.expat module.

  If you still think it needed, I'll take a look Thurday or Friday.

  The issue is that Python 2.0b2 will say that 0.6.1 is sufficient.
I'd like to make that work.  A couple of iterations of testing is
worth the time it takes.
