defusedxml (XML bomb protection for Python stdlib modules)

The results of an attack on a vulnerable XML library can be fairly
dramatic.  With just a few hundred Bytes of XML data an attacker can
occupy several Gigabytes of memory within seconds.  An attacker can
also keep CPUs busy for a long time with a small to medium size
request.  Under some circumstances it is even possible to access local
files on your server, to circumvent a firewall, or to abuse services
to rebound attacks to third parties.  This library allows for XML to
be parsed in a manner that avoids these pitfalls.
