  I believe libxml2 interface to plug you own resolvers and I/O
implementation are sufficient. This doesn't prevent building stuff
making use of it as a library, but I don't think this need to be added
directly to libxml2.

Yes that is what I meant, that the transports would be completely plugable 
into the application and should not need to cause any changes to libxml2.  
They would use the normal libxml2 functions to install thier resolver or I/O 

My email was in response to the thread

Personaly, I wonder what is the scope of the libxml2 project in reguards to 
tranports. At what point do you say this access to a given transport is 
outside of the scope of libxml2? I imagine that there are many transports 
available  - including some that provide fuller implementation of  transports 
that are part of libxml2.  

For example I could easliy imagine that there be a "readonly sql' transport 
that feed of a SQL database with XML output support.  Though it would seem 
somewhat odd to me to have  libxml2 updated to have data base support.  

Just my 2 cents.
