python-xml package changes in hardy

sorry to bother you but we got a little confused after upgrading our
computers to hardy. The thing is that we used the xml.xpath class from
the python-xml package which worked just fine under gutsy. But after the
upgrade we had to face that a few things had changed in the whole xml
handling part of python in the packages of hardy. We found out that the
python-xml package still has everything what we would need but since it
is going to be removed it installs itself outside the sys.path. So we
started to find a way which we could use instead of this. And there is
the python-4suite-xml package which seems to have the same functionality
but with an absolutely different structure so we would need to modify
The question I would like to ask whether there is a 'official', defined
way to get rid of the python-xml package and use something else but
without modifying the source? Or is there any documentation about these
changes and the workaround?
Thanks for your help in advance.
