List of all members.

Detailed Description

An Amara bindery rule.  Bindery rules allow developers to customize how
XML documents are translated to Python objects.

This rule is pattern based.  Elements that match the pattern and
descendants will have text children stripped if they are pure whitespace.
In other words
<a> <b/> <c/> </a>
will end up with the same binding as
<a> <b/> <c/> </a>
but not
<a> <b/> x <c/> </a> <!-- ' x ' is not pure whirespace -->
Stripping whitespace saves memory and can simplify resulting bindings,
but be sure the whitespace doesn't have a significant meeaning in the

The default pattern is '*', meaning all elements.
