You can read the documentation at, and define

I was contemplating doing that for my project but I haven't had time to
properly do it yet. So if you could come out with a code snippet that shows
how to plug gnome vfs at xmlio level, it would be great ;)

Looks like I got it. It's quite simple. I used local documentation (from libxml2-doc debian package), so I 
can't give exact links to webpages (but
debian documentation is actually a copy of developer's part of libXML website, so look at filenames).

#include <libgnomevfs/gnome-vfs.h>
#include <libxml/xmlIO.h>

/* A simple fwrite-like wrapper for gnome_vfs_write
   This is needed because xmlOutputWriteCallback must take only three parameters and return the number of 
bytes written or -1 on error (see
   /usr/share/doc/libxml2-doc/html/html/libxml-xmlIO.html#xmlOutputWriteCallback), and gnome_vfs_write take 
four parameters (fourth is the
   number of written bytes) and returns GnomeVFSResult.
int gnomevfs_mywrite(GnomeVFSHandle *handle, const gchar *buf, gint len) {
        GnomeVFSFileSize written;

        if (gnome_vfs_write(handle, buf, len, &written) == GNOME_VFS_OK)
                return (int)written; /* GnomeVFSFileSize is a unsigned long long blah blah blah */
                return -1;

/* Output buffer constructor (see /usr/share/doc/libxml2-doc/html/xmlio.html)

functions */

        if (handle == NULL) return NULL;                                        /* Just check */
        if ((ret = xmlAllocOutputBuffer(NULL)) != NULL) {                       /* Creating an output buffer 
(see documentation) */
                ret->context = handle;                                          /* A context to use with 
callbacks */
                ret->writecallback = (xmlOutputWriteCallback)gnomevfs_mywrite;  /* A write function (look 
wrapper comment above) */
                ret->closecallback = (xmlOutputCloseCallback)gnome_vfs_close;   /* Close function (no
