I've written some guile bindings for libxml2 and libxsl.

At the moment they're packaged in their own library which I'll put up


But would anyone (particularly Daniel) be interested in a patch to
the main libxml code to add guile as a distributed binding? (eg: a
--with-guile patch to the autoconf?)

  Hum, there is a lot of points which would need to be checked so that
those bindings gets distributed as part of libxml2 itself:
  1/ Licence should match
  2/ garantee of maintainability
  3/ completeness
  4/ cleanness 
  5/ size

 in general adding the bindings means as a result that I guarantee some
level of support, and that's something which might take a bit of time
to estimate. I would really prefer bindings which are automatically gnerated
from the XML API definition of the library, this somewhat garantees a
minimum status for point 2/ 3/ and 4/ .
  I have no idea at the moment about the current state of your code,
and it would be premature - I think - to say yes at this point. But I'm
in general interested in getting good bindings for common languages.
