Re: [PATCH 2/5] connectivity: Add libxml2 as a dependency

In these patches I want to fix the 511-http-status. As it's something new, of course most hotspots don't use that (including my employer).

Almost all of them rely on 30X Moved with help of the Wispr 'pseudo-protocol'. It's on my TODO list to work on those scenarios. That would touch only code in NMConnectivity object.

Indeed, for that cases, we would use xml parsing as wispr is xml.

Yeah, and I've heard that for example, some hotspots literally just
append raw XML to the end of the HTTP request outside the XML.  I think
we need to be somewhat more robust here and XML parsing may not be the
way to get there?  Also, we may need to add special cases for various
hotspots, which might require regex and not just XML parsing.
