  Okay, I understand that plugging libxml2 in in Java APIs might not be
trivial (API divergence at high level, ref counting) or not really worth
it performance wise (SAX level), but if they need help, the best is to
post on the libxml2 mailing-list there might be others facing similar
problems probably not on Java but with other kind of bindings:

  Libxslt might be easier to wrap and provide more benefits speed wise.
