I was so sure that PyXML was already part of the Python distribution. 
Unfortunately I can't remember where I this from. A few days ago an 
OpenSwarm user brought my attention to the same issue Paul mentioned so 
I realized it needs to be installed extra.

Has PyXML ever been part of the official Python distribution or were 
there plans once to do so?

Probably I'm just getting old and muddle-headed.
