it took me a while to figure it out, but it's a bug in the ElementWrapper
sample, not in the ElementTree library.

changing the ElementWrapper __getattr__ code from

    def __getattr__(self, tag):
        return self._element.findtext(self._ns + tag)


    def __getattr__(self, tag):
        if tag.startswith("__"):
            raise AttributeError(tag)
        return self._element.findtext(self._ns + tag)

should help.
