Time for a new release.  The 0.9.2 release is 10-20% faster than 0.8 on
my benchmarks, and uses 5-15% less memory.  You can consider this to
be the first 1.0 release candidate.

Here are some benchmark results, using a number of popular XML tool-
kits to parse a 3405k source file on my development machine:

    library                     memory  time
    minidom (python 2.1)        80000k  6.5s
    minidom (python 2.4)        53000k  1.4s
    ElementTree 1.3             14500k  1.1s
    cElementTree 0.8             5700k  0.058s
    cElementTree 0.9             4900k  0.047s
    readlines (read as utf-8)    8850k  0.093s
    readlines (read as ascii)    5050k  0.032s
