Apparently there was some confusion. To be clear, the above commit now
after re-clarification from MITRE is CVE-2016-10149[1], which means
the initially assigned CVE for the XXE vulnerability in pysaml2 is
still unfixed. Will open another bug for it. See the comments in the
references oss-security post for details.
