I think we should have as many tools as makes sense in PyXML.  My main 
question would be: what else do people need to have besides what is bundled in 
PyXML?  I assume libxml and the like, which is probably too much.

Either way, I'd be happy to update the XML-SIG XML topic to mention it.

Thanks a bunch for this.
