Thanks for the reference.  I think pyRXP looks pretty neat -- using existing
language data structures rather than inventing an API (like DOM) certainly has
its advantages.  Personally I would have preferred something mutable, but I
could see reasons to go either way.

The one thing I don't see PyRXP doing is this:

I shouldn't have phrased this as API adherence but more as a semantic
requirement.  I want to do parsing and routing of XML such as jabber's "XML
streams", as a network protocol and not as a document parser.  Of course I also
want a document parser, for other purposes.  at least passing DOM adherence
means that I can rewrite much less of the existing Twisted/XML code :-)
