Since some time a subset of python-xml is included in the
standard python library, while the python-xml package did not see
any updates for years.  It is time to drop it from the distribution.
Update scenarios:

 - Just drop the (build) dependency, if the functionality is included
   in python. (Build)-depend on python (>= 2.4).

 - Copy missing code in the std library from the python-xml package.

 - Use another xml library (python-4suite-xml, python-lxml).
