So what you say is we force people install python if they want xml import in 
blender on windows ? 

I was hoping on a more userfriendly approach. Does anyone know if pyexpat 
(one of the python wrappers) is dependent on lots of other (pyxml) modules ? 

Isn't someone already working on a stripped python distribution for blender, 
perhaps this expat xml wrapping could be part of it ? 

Its not (just) the hassle of installing python, but also keeping the python 
versions in sync.
