  BTW, I'm about to release python bindings as part of the libxml2
and libxslt distributions [1]. Both are also C implementations, and 
generally considered fast and conformant ones.
  The python bindings will provide:
     - SAX wrappers
     - DOM like access to the trees if generated, plus mutator
       and saving operations
     - Catalog (XML and SGML support)
     - integrated HTML parser with similar handling as XML
     - XSLT support
     - EXSLT support (nearly complete)
     - the possibility to extend XPath and XSLT engine with 
       routines written in Python
