I don't think the extra dep is a real problem, given that a full QEMU
build already links to 150+ libraries and libxml is widely available
across platforms and certainly everywhere on Linux. If you  build QEMU
with modular block drivers, then the libxml dep only gets added to the
parallels block driver so file and thus only loaded when needed.
