no, they have to call a single function that does it for them (and the "transformation"
is extremely light-weight: there's hardly any copying of data going on, just references
being moved from tuple objects to instance attributes.  RXP+conversion+Element-
Tree is *faster* than expat+ElementTree, after all).

if you want even more performance, *and* DTD and RelaxNG support, this was
just released:


(still things to download, though)
