Hi, Martijn

Good to hear that there may be some interest.  As usual, soon after 
publishing, I came up with some ideas for improving the implementation 
algorithms.  It's on my to-do list. 

BTW, I have recently been having some fun generating Zope 3 pages using 
lxml.  I plan to do another article about that, soon.
