The WXS module in libxml2-2.5.11 provides an interface

However, in my project I already have the schema document

At the moment my code serializes the schema document into
a memory buffer and then passes that buffer to
xmlSchemaNewMemParserCtxt.  This routine then re-parses the

Accordingly, my RFE is to have a new API that accepts the
schema document as an xmlDocPtr.  Something like:

xmlSchemaParserCtxtPtr xmlSchemaNewDocParserCtxt   (xmlDocPtr doc);

The code would be fairly straight-forward, in fact almost
trivial.  I can do the implementation and submit it as a
patch if desired.

  Yep, should be trivial to add this entry point, I take patches :)
Still I'm a bit scared that you use the Schemas implementation, I
suppose it all depends on the schemas you actually use, if simple
enough you may not hit any bug.
