  Description     : A modern CSS selector implementation for BeautifulSoup

Soup Sieve is a CSS selector library designed to be used with Beautiful
Soup 4 (python-bs4 in Debian). It aims to provide selecting, matching,
and filtering using modern CSS selectors. Soup Sieve currently provides
selectors from the CSS level 1 specifications up through the latest CSS
level 4 drafts (though some are not yet implemented).

Soup Sieve was written with the intent to replace Beautiful Soup's
builtin select feature, and as of Beautiful Soup version 4.7.0, it now
is 🎊. Soup Sieve can also be imported in order to use its API directly
for more controlled, specialized parsing.
