A `libxml' prefix sounds a bit weird to me.  When we link to the GPM
library, the functions are `gpm-mouse-*' not `libgpm-mouse-*'.

I think the xml.el package needs to be re-written with the new libxml2
support in mind, so that it makes use of the libxml functions if they
are available and fall back on the Elisp parser.

xml-parse-string-internal or something like that.
