Using tulip-inspired method names (when tulip hasn't landed) to duplicate existing data input functionality (feed() and close()) seems a rather dubious design decision to me.

Given how popular lxml.etree is as an alternative to the standard library's etree implementation, we shouldn't dismiss Stefan's design concerns lightly.
