  Can't you just undef the uneeded variable before launching xmllint

  Just to put a bit of emphasis on my side:
     - libxml2 + libxslt is already around 200,000 lines of C code
     - I read recently that usually a programmer can maintain around
       20,000 lines of code in average
     - there is clearly not 10 fulltime programmers maintaining those
       (even I am not full time on them !)

Draw your own conclusions, but mine is that if something can be
implemented simply outside of the libraries and existing code,
well it's a good idea to take that path, really !
