SAML2 & Python 3.11+, do I have to use a third party library?

The prevailing wisdom for getting SAML to work with Python is to install python3-saml, however that library depends on xmlsec. xmlsec does not seem to install on my workstation running Python 3.11+ system or in a Linux Docker container running Python 3.11+ system.
As a result it looks like getting SAML to work in Python 3.11+ will not be happening until/unless a useable and installable SAML library for Python is released.

Can SAML be done without a third party library?
