It's great in terms of features/compliance but I've only successfully 
managed to use the win32 binary. My annoyances with deploying python1.5 and 
LTXML on my own linux machine is part of what prompts my question here. 
(Though it is not *impossible* since it runs on W3C's server (linux) as a 
web service, but I found that machines config sufficiently confusing and 
maintainers sufficiently forgetful not to get very far given the little 
time I spent on it.) However, when presented with folks more knowledgeable 
than myself and with the carrot of integration in PyXML, more progress 
might be made, particularly if there's folks here keen on it?
