Any clash between 4Suite 0.10.2 and PyXML 0.6.3 is a bug.  You said the 
problem is fixed, but if you have any more specifics, it would be great if you
posted them here.  The problems you originally posted looked like 
straightforward "-f needed" problems, but you said this didn't work for you.

I should note that I'm not sure that 4Suite 0.10.2 and PyXML 0.6.4 won't 
clash.  Most likely, one would end up with the older revision 4DOM from 
0.10.2, rather than the updated revision in PyXML 0.6.4 that contains some 
bug-fixes.  The next 4Suite release will only use the DOM in PyXML.
