Putting in my late 2 cents.
I think PyXML should ditch support for Python 1.5.2 in precisely the mann=

I am very sympathetic to Red Hat's needs, and so I don't take Trond's poi=

which is Python 2.x only. I'm not sure how to help this situation.
I've already assumed I'll have to work with you a bit to help you package=
0.12.0 releases in a suitable RPM form. We now bundle 4Suite Server, in =
