ToDo's for lxml
In general
* more testing on multi-threading
* better exception messages for XPath and schemas based on error log,
e.g. missing namespace mappings in XPath
* when building statically, compile everything into one shared library
instead of one for lxml.etree and one for lxml.objectify to prevent
the redundant static linking of the library dependencies.
* more testing on input/output of encoded filenames, including custom
resolvers, relative XSLT imports, ...
* always use '<string>' as URL when tree was parsed from string? (can libxml2
handle this?)
* follow PEP 8 in API naming (avoidCamelCase in_favour_of_underscores)
* use per-call or per-thread error logs in XSLT/XPath/etc. to keep the
messages separate, especially in exceptions
* add 'nsmap' parameter to cleanup_namespaces()
* clean support for entities (is the Entity element class enough?)
* emulate setting special __attributes__ on ObjectifiedElement's as Python
attributes, not XML children
