pyxml package not working? No xml.dom.ext.reader module available after install.

I've tried to install the pyxml-package, available at http://pyxml.sourceforge.net/,
both from source and using some hack on the win32-binary package
available for python2.4, but without luck. After install the module
xml.dom.ext.reader is not available, eventhough the folder, __init__py
and everything is in place.

Why? And could someone please make a win32-binary package of pyxml for
python2.5? Thanks!

PyXML has not been actively maintained for some years now. Use ElementTree or
lxml instead.

But the problem is that I'm using some piece of code that needs pyxml.
Wouldn't be a problem if I was developing this project myself.

Ah, ok. I was just suggesting that you'd be very lucky if someone came up with
a fresh build or something...
