I'll agree with Stefan, here.  If lxml does not take care of your
needs, then you must have very special needs.

And, in the event that you *really* do need to use some Java XML
class library, seriously consider using that library through
Jython.  Jython makes it very easy to use something like dom4j
(http://www.dom4j.org/).  I've even generated a Java jar file from
an XML Schema using XMLBeans (http://xmlbeans.apache.org/), then
used that jar file from Jython.
