In the shorter term, fixing this "bug" or "lack of feature" in libxml2
would be ideal.  I need to understand the two different ways we invoke
XML parsing a bit better.  We bootstrap the libxml2 parser slightly
different depending on whether it is a "string parser" or a "memory
parser".   Why is there a difference?
