It's relatively unlikely that I implement that change. For every PyXML 
release for the last two years, somebody said that it won't work on 
Darwin, and proposed a change to make it work. I implemented that 
change, and then in the next release, somebody else said that the 
previous solution doesn't work, and proposed something else.

So unless I get a specific patch with elaboration why a certain setup is 
the right thing, and an email address I can put into setup.py, I'm 
unwilling to make any changes I cannot test.
