Weeeeeeel.  My guess is that such a move would require a *person's* name, and 
nothing as wooly as "XML-SIG" in order to fly in the python-dev camp.  And 
this would be rightly so.

The problem is that I don't have the bandwidth to attach my name to 
maintaining it, and I wouldn't want to presume that anyone else does.  Unless 
someone steps forward clearly to volunteer, I fear that this whole discussion 
is largely academic.  I appreciate Martijn's offer fo some resources, but I'm 
not sure that even that puts us on firm enough ground.
