Gdome2 provides its own mechanism for memory management which is based
on reference counting. As far as I remember, there is _never_ the need
to use free on any Gdome2 data structures. You always have to do _unref
and the structure gets automatically deallocated if that was the last
live reference to it.

I don't think there is any piece of libxml2 data that goes through
Gdome2 directly to the user code.
