simplified XML parsers (see bug 2488).  This looks like a big
improvement on the rather repetitive coding needed in the first draft.
 Are you still actively making further refinements?  How many Entrez
XML file formats are still needed?

I am still making refinements. I am using this module a lot for my own work, and I have a lot of changes that are not in CVS yet. The final result should be much simpler than what is in CVS now. In particular, we won't have to write a Python module for each DTD, but let Python figure out the DTD for itself.
Once this is finished (hopefully soon), I'd be happy to make a new release.
