I am using the <libxml/tree.h> interface to create an XML document.
I need to add comments before the root element; something like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!--A document comment-->

It seems that this can be achieved if I create a comment using
xmlNewDocComment() and then add it to the document with
xmlDocSetRootElement() before I add the actual root element.

I just wanted to verify that this is the correct way to add
document comments.

   Hum, I would rather use xmlAddChild(doc, comment) if the root isn't
set yet or if the root is already in place use xmlDocGetRootElement()
and xmlAddPrevSibling(root, comment) .
   xmlDocSetRootElement() is more expected to be used for elements nodes
for example it will wipe out the old root if it already exists.
