RE: [xml] Network code in libxml (was: SSL/TLS support)

My opinion is libxml provides basic network functionality, which is
necessary to resolve DTDs and handle http/ftp URIs.  This of course can be
compiled out if it is not desired.  

With regard to complexity, it is admirable to keep the complexity down.  I
do believe that having basic network support and allowing users to override
this through callbacks (such as my Win32 SSL implemtation does) is the
cleanest, least complex approach.  Adding dependencies to additional
libraries significantly increases the complexity, especially when
considering the number of platforms this library is used on.

So, in short, I support the status quo -- having basic functionality built
in and allowing anyone to customize to their hearts content using their own
registered callbacks.
