BTW, I found that lxml and ET differ in their behaviour when searching for '*'. ET takes it as meaning "any tree node", whereas lxml interprets it as "any Element". Since ET's parser does not create comments and processing instructions by default, this does not make a difference in most cases, but when the tree contains comments or PIs, then they will be found by '*' in ET but not in lxml.

At least for "{*}*", they now both return only Elements. Changing either behaviour for '*' is probably not a good idea at this point.
