Xml processing comment 000

I looked at Kid's, and was a little confused by the iterating over events/tokens that it used. I wasn't really clear what that internal data structure was. I ended up creating an ElementTree subclass HTMLTree in dumbpath. It might leave out things that Kid does, but it mostly makes sure that empty elements don't get /> and that all other elements use both opening and closing tags. And it strips namespaces.

An HTML serializer would be a nice addition to elementtidy, since reading and writing HTML are operations that often go together.
