> In xml/etree there is:

>   ImportError, imports pyElementTree
> - pyElementTree: the pure Python implementation
> - cElementTree: sets up the bootstrap Python code and tries to import

What I had in mind is more like:
 - ElementTree: defines the python code and if _elementtree is available overrides part of it with the functions imported from it;
 - cElementTree: at this point it could just be a deprecated alias for ElementTree
