Hmm. This is a judgment call that I cannot agree with. Just look at the API
level updates in the RPM repository for any popular C library in RedHat, say.
You'll see that thre is a lot of churn in those waters. Debian is no
exception, as I found in my sojourn in Debian waters.
Remember where the phrase "DLL hell" comes from: version skew in C libraries
on Windows. Reflect that popular UNIX systems from Solaris to Linux are just
as notorious for ".so dependency hell".
So can we do a better job with PyXML? Perhaps. But do we compare unfavorably
with many C libraries? I find it very hard to credit that.
