The Element type is a simple but flexible container object, designed
to store hierarchical data structures, such as simplified XML infosets,
in memory.  The ElementTree package provides a Python implementation
of this type, plus code to serialize element trees to and from XML files.

The 1.2 release adds limited support for XPath and XInclude, and also
fixes a number of serialization bugs, mostly related to extensive use of
namespaces and unicode in tags and attribute names.  For a complete
list of changes, see the CHANGES document in the source kit.

Brief documentation and some code samples (including an XML-RPC
unmarshaller in 16 lines) are available from:
