I recently used xish.xpath instead of libxml's xpath in a Nevow example
to avoid introducing the external dependency. I knew xish would be
available to anyone interested in the example ... or so I thought ;-).
The xish.xpath implementation is lacking a few useful bits of the xpath
spec but other than that it's useful.

I don't know enough about the xish package as a whole to comment on
other parts - I only used (possibly wrongly) what I needed from it to
get the example working.

Cheers, Matt
