I'm confused -- miniDom has this function, in stock Python 2.6 and
2.7, which is what I thought you said you were using?

  Python 2.6.5 (r265:79063, Jun 12 2010, 17:07:01)
  [GCC 4.3.4 20090804 (release) 1] on cygwin
  Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
  >>> from xml.dom.minidom import parseString
  >>> d=parseString("<r xmlns:x='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml'
  x:about='#foo'/>")
  >>> d.firstChild.getAttributeNode('x:about').namespaceURI
  u'http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml'
  >>> d.firstChild.hasAttributeNS('http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml','about')
  True
