Ok, I have played around with your cross-eit.py and I do not like at
all the way it creates huge line lengths.  That can be a problem for a
program trying to read data into a buffer - maybe mythfilldatabase is
having that problem.  So I have modified it to use the lxml library
instead of xml, and used lxml's pretty printing output option.  I have
put it on my web server:


If you do not already have the lxml package installed, on Ubuntu you
can install it with:

apt install python3-lxml

or it can be installed using pip.
