Well, you can reverse the import so you're not relying on version numbers:
import xml.etree.ElementTree as ElementTree
import xml.etree.cElementTree as ElementTree
There is a slight cost compared to previously (always importing the python
version) and you'll still be using cElementTree directly until it's
removed, but if/when it is removed you won't notice it.
