Re: Announcing: Project Ridley

If someone wanted to port fontconfig to support libxml2, I'm sure the
patch would get accepted, were it reasonable. The code actually used to
have a configure option to use libxml2 instead, but it was not getting
the maintanence it needed, so it was removed.

Beyond that, the only other thing which I care about that uses expat,
is the XML::Parser perl module, which we require for intltool.

Most everything else in terms of Gnome, use libxml2 anyway. Gnumeric,
Abiword, the background capplet, gconf, etc... all use libxml2.
