Let's not argue what's more straightforward or not -- I don't mind a
DOM-type API if I'm parsing XML, but when I'm creating it from
scratch, it's kind-of a pain.
That said, XMLBuilder hasn't been used in the real-world, though I
have a couple of products that I might plug it into and see how it
holds up. It was mostly an experiment on my part -- seeing a cool
idea in one language and taking that concept into Python.
