[XML-SIG] a package for minidom

As the support code for minidom grows (because additional DOM features
are implemented), it becomes increasingly valuable to allow the
implementation to be placed in more than one module simply to make the
code easier to manage.
As additional minidom implementation modules are created, it will be
easier to maintain if the modules are separated from the 4DOM
implemtation by a package bondary.
I propose creating a new package, xml.dom.mini, which contains the
following modules to start with:
xml.dom.mini.corexml # the current/enhanced xml.dom.minidom
xml.dom.mini.traversal # the current xml.dom.minitraversal
xml.dom.mini.loadsave # the basic interface for Load/Save
xml.dom.mini.expatbuilder # very tedious Expat-specific code
xml.dom.mini.compat # Python-version compatibility code
The following modules would become wrappers around the new package for
xml.dom.minidom # from xml.dom.mini.corexml import *
xml.dom.minitraversal # from xml.dom.mini.traversal import *
