Excellent!  Thanks for the BoF notes, BTW; I wish I'd been able to

Good idea; there's no need to have multiple InputSource types.  We can
move the InputSource implementation to xml.utils or someplace and then
import it into both places (since we need to maintain compatibility
with the APIs that already offer it directly).

I presume you mean the whole implementation of my proposal?  I can do
that.  I'll presume we can target this for PyXML 0.8; I don't know
what plans there are for a PyXML 0.7.1.
