Seperating basic usage from extended usage in the documentation would
go a long way towards satisfying both requirements: keeping the
initial conceptual load down while still allowing richer use.
I think what makes minidom lightweight is it's implementation and
footprint, mostly due to relaxing many of the requirements of W3C DOM.
