It means a function defined in the module namespace, as opposed to as a method on a class, so that 'from xml.dom.minidom import <somefunction>' will get you that function.

This issue should be for documentation of the problem, since we won't add the function to 2.7.  A new issue should be opened for the enhancement request of adding a module level convenience function for writing a dom out to a binary file.
