I had an email thread about this with DV back when I added that hack.  He did
not seem interested at the time in supporting WebCore's usecase of determining
the encoding of the string ourselves.  He suggested that libxml's supported
usecase was as a stand-alone library, not as a support library for parsing as
we're using it.  I can dig up the emails if necessary (assuming they weren't
lost in the depths of my @apple account).  So in the end, we came up with this
hack to work around the issue.  I'm not surprised it broke, but I'm sad that it
did. :(
