[xml] libxml2/python/setup.py, or libxml2-python/setup.py ?


I have no technical trouble with libxml2 -- but I am confused on what 
packages/conbinations to use when it comes to installing Python bindings for 
libxslt and libxml2 from source.

The libxml2 package has a setup.py file in its sub folder python/ which 
installs fully functional Python bindings for it, AFAICT.

The libxslt package has a python/ directory, but no setup.py -- I've not 
managed to install libxslt Python bindings from the libxslt package.

Then there's the libxml2-python package, which installs both libxml2 and 
libxslt bindings. The most recent release I found was 2.6.15
(ftp://xmlsoft.org/python/), I assume no changes in libxml2 2.6.16 lead to 
changes in the Python bindings.

I now wonder, what is the correct procedure for installing bindings from 
source for, say libxml2? Does it matter if I use libxml2-python or 
libxml2/python? If I want to install bindings for libxslt, is libxml2-python 
the only option?
