Before I first checked 4XPath/4XSLT into PyXML, I had already
significantly modified it; see README.4XPath for an outline of the

Some of these changes have been integrated into 4Suite. To continue to
keep the two branches similar, I've now integrated the changes of
4Suite 0.11 into PyXML. I have not yet modified them to work
