Yeah, I also though that this was strange depending on getting
the dtd over the net each time you want to verify a xml based format.
A proxy would help this a lot, but still it is a lot of traffic.

It seems I do have /usr/share/xml/svg/svg10.dtd installed,
so the question is why this is not used.
This is Debian's python2.3-xml 0.8.3-5 

I am not an expert: Should this use the locally installed file
instead of going over the net? 
If so I could file a bug report with Debian.

Nevertheless I guess that the Exception will need to be caught
so that the test can be skipped.
