Linking Emacs with libxml2

Apparently libxml2 comes with a parser for "real world" HTML, which is
very intriguing:


If Emacs provided a native interface to this function, we could say

(parse-html "file.html")
=> (:html (:head ...) (:body ...))

and get a nice parse tree out very fast.  (Parsing HTML from Emacs Lisp
is rather slow.)

Has this been discussed before and rejected?  It seems like an obvious
idea, and would enable both easier extraction of data from HTML files,
as well as writing a (simple) HTML renderer in Emacs Lisp.

(domestic pets only, the antidote for overdose, milk.)
