There is a list of mirrors on http://www.debian.org/mirror/list.

Am I correct to understand that you have compiled python 2.3.2 yourself
and don't have the packaged version? Then you probably want the source
version of python-xml too. Get that at http://pyxml.sourceforge.net/.

A better option would probably be to backport python2.3 and the other
dependencies from sid.

Another option is also to just download the source dist of Mattricks and
run directly from there.
