Yes, there is. The current HTML parser has been implemented via the
SAX interface. The SAX interface is compatible with that of Expat, so
it is very easy to replace Expat with libxml. The major difference
lies in the setting up your own callback functions, where Expat uses
setter funtions and libxml uses an array. You can find examples in

Second, if we end up bundling libxml2 with swish-e, would someone be able
to offer help on how to incorporate it into swish?  Is the best way to

IMHO, it is best to install them separately (like you would with any
other library). First people have to install libxml (which may already
be on the system), and afterwards they have to install swish-e.
