   thanks, I updated my wrappers to do something similar, but a bit
more careful checking first for the Os version before making any hardcoded

  I would really prefer to avoid this for distribution purposes.

I have put updated RPMs of libxml2-python-2.4.16 and libxslt-python-1.0.12
with 2.2 modules at ftp://xmlsoft.org/test/

    Thanks for the help on this issue, I'm now looking at the setup.py docs,
