IIRC, there is a well specified way how accelerator modules should be used
by Python modules. I recall a lengthy discussion on python-dev (or the py3k
list?) back in the old pre-3.0 days, maybe there's even a PEP?

> * xml/etree/ disappears.

Careful with backwards compatibility here. It's the accelerator module
(, IIRC) which is to be moved behind

I don't see a compelling enough reason to break imports in existing code by
removing the cElementTree module, so we should not do that.
