I've said this before, and I still think it holds true. ElementTree is very nice.
There was a recent discussion about it on comp.text.xml, which got the attention of Fredrik Lundth
I do much apreciate ElementTree. Of course using a non-DOM API to process xml conviniently is heresy, and will call the gods crushing down on us.
I find the proponents to a strict and true die hard one Document Model API hillarious in their self imposed blindness towards pragmatism.
But then, it's not my time I'm wasting on cumbersome and broken API's, or is it? Of course the Net-dammage in the form of popular implementations of DOM can't be taken into account lightly...
