(From update of attachment 19125)
r=me, with some reservations.

Doesn't this still leave us with the problem that other libxml2 clients could
call xmlRegisterInputCallbacks and clobber our callbacks with their own? Is
there a "save and restore" approach we could use instead?

Should we file a bug asking libxml2 to come up with a way of doing this that's
not global?

+    // TODO: We should restore the original global error handler as well.

We use FIXME, not TODO, for these things.
