You need a parent component (such as 'config.makeRoot()'); None isn't 
useful here.

See 'peak help config.makeRoot' for info on config.makeRoot.

Your next likely hurdle will be that you need to be in a 
transaction.  Here's a simple script for starters:

from peak.api import *
root = config.makeRoot()
items = storage.xmi.fromFile('pgefenterprise.xmi', root)
print items

'items' will be a sequence of the serialized roots of the XMI document in
