Module beepy.profiles.mgmtparser

The BEEP Management Profile XML Parser.

I'm being sneaky here so that I can use just what's available within the Python Standard Library. I want to use DOM, so I'm using minidom, but minidom doesn't support parsing of CDATA sections. Dumb, but that's the way it is. minidom _does_ support the creation of them and subsequent output, so we cheat, using pyExpat to parse things in, but create a minidom DOM document anyway, sidestepping the limitations of minidom.

If minidom ever gets fixed up to support CDATA, we can do away with this smoke and mirrors technique.
Parser A Parser object takes in string encodings of XML documents that represent a BEEP Management message

ParserException Exception raised if there are any errors during parsing of XML data.
