Yes. But the API is a bit unpythonic.

lxml - http://codespeak.net/lxml/

If you are using lxml it follows the excellent ElementTree API

Better or not... You have the choice! There is a lot of good python  
librairies and frameworks ready to use out there and since most of  
them use the WSGI ref you can benefit a large code base.
