I don't think there is reasonably anythign o be dne in the Python 2.3 
timeframe, but I think the overall discussion has been about the idea of 
moving SAX and DOM more firmly into Python core, i.e. not maintaining two 
separate versions of pysax and dom-minus-4DOM.

The thinking is that this may be a relatively inexpensive way to reduce some 
of the confusion that people have mentioned in this thread.  If you think it's 
not so inexpensive, or that it's a bad idea, that in itself would be a useful 
data point.
