Thanks, but if anyhow possible, I'd like to stick to something
that is available from stock RHEL5 and python-lxml isn't included

Ok, you want to copy, not move the node, so lxml.etree would do:

   >>> from copy import deepcopy
   >>> x.append(deepcopy(y))

Short and intuitive.

Yes it is, I will certainly consider migrating to lxml.

But isn't there a method that works without lxml?  Now porting my
stuff to lxml is quite some work...

Thanks anyway,
