I'm using the python bindings of libxml2 2.6.26 and 

print doc.type

returns a string and not the expected value libxml2.XML_DOCUMENT_NODE.
Is that right? Am I doing something wrong?

This is even worse, libxml2 "translates" the types to some arbitrary
strings for at least document, element and text nodes and this is not
documented anywhere.

I'm going to file a bug report tomorrow, if there's nobody who can
explain this.

  that's normal. The bindings have been working that way forever.
XML_DOCUMENT_NODE and other node types are internal C values, they 
got exported by the bindings generator but are not accessible from
  Those 'arbitrary' strings are I think the string I saw the first
time I checked existing XML python bindings so I reused them.
