Better known as xmldiff_ :)

While I am at it, I would like to mention that logilab-common_ has a
testlib submodule that wraps unittest to improve and it and offer
generated tests, fall-back to pdb on error, pytest for test discovery,
assertListEquals, assertTextEquals, etc.

If only we had time, we would look at we can be done to merge with
nose if it makes sense.

And in case anyone in the audience was about to ask, pylint_ is alive,
but we lack time and external contributions to make it move forward as
fast as it would deserve.
