I'd rather leave it, in case people want to enhance it after Python
2.0 is released. Currently, it will be installed only if Python
doesn't come with a suitable pyexpat on its own.

I have also my concerns about the versionitis in the expat library
itself; I'll discuss this later after I gather some more facts.

I'd appreciate if you could find the time. The relevant versions are
1.10 and 1.11 of extensions/pyexpat.c.

Definitely. I also just noticed there is a pending bug report on SF
which I'd like to resolve.
