for xmllint !

I'm not clear on what this does. Could someone explain so I can add it
to the man page?

libxml2 has two new internal callbacks:
  xmlRegisterNode and xmlDeregisterNode
these are of great help to language bindinds in tracking the nodes
libxml2 internally creates and destroys.

--chkregister of xmllint activates a simple node tracking scheme in
xmllint that helps in finding out whether the tracking api "kind of"
works (e.g. whether xmlDeregisterNode is called for every
xmlRegisterNode).  it's a debugging aid for developers for the
node-tracking api.

--chkregister is very preliminary and in its current state uninteresting
to non-libxml2-developers; even for libxml2-developers its only useful
if xmllint is run through valgrind to find memory leaks that might have
to do with the node tracking api.

hops this helps.
