[xml] Documentation improvement suggestion


  I'm a novice in libxml programming, and I'd like the libxml
documentation was a bit better. In particular, if a function uses
pointers, it's good to know the following.

1) Reaction on NULL values

2) If the caller should use xmlFree()

3) Side effects related to memory allocation

  This information reduces risk of writing code like this:

full_name = xmlStrcat(ns_prefix ? ns_prefix : "", local_name);

  (Do you see a coredump here?)
