I am at v.0.58 I believe.

1. & 11. agree. Sorry for false alarm.
srctext = re.sub(r"<a/>",r"", srctext)
srctext = re.sub(r"<a ?></a>",r"", srctext)

"<a />", "<a> </a>" would not be removed but are as empty as "<a ></a>".
It's not a perf bottle neck for sure, but you may consider matching both empty tags in single expression, like "(<a\s*/>)|(<a\s*>\s*</a>)".

I'll upgrade to 0.59 now.
