Hi,

I was looking at xmlutils today, and I took a look at the history of
this file that seems to come from a CVE almost 2 years ago.

What is surprising is that, unless I missed something, the only user of
that lib is Nova. Other projects such as Keystone or Neutron implemented
things in a different way.

It seems that Python fixed that issue with 2 modules released on PyPI:

  https://pypi.python.org/pypi/defusedxml
  https://pypi.python.org/pypi/defusedexpat

I'm no XML expert, and I've only a shallow understanding of the issue,
but I wonder if we should put some efforts to drop xmlutils and our
custom XML fixes to used instead these 2 modules.

Hint appreciated.
