What's wrong with it? It's got a familiar API, and it's easier to work  
with than the built-in expat parser. If you've already got a  
dependency on Twisted, it seems like a good choice unless you need a  
high level of performance.

If it's so bad that you'd tell someone not to use it, why isn't it  
deprecated?
