  Should be fairly simple, make a C python binding routine based on
existing ones in python/libxml.c , give it a significant name,
change the beginning to expect 2 python obect references as arguments,
see type.h to see how the C object is attached, get the two xmlNodePtr
associated. Compare them, and return an python 0 or 1, then register
the new routine at the end of libxml.c
  now in override the comparator operator to call that routine
in libxml2mod, add a python test case in test/ and bingo you're done :-)

Hmm, this thread looks interesting now :-)

Thanks to William Brack I could create a proper patch that enables
comparison of Python objects derived from xmlCore (i.e. xmlNode and all
subclasses). The bugreport is 345779 and I hope it'll make it into some
not-so-distant future version of libxml2.

  See it wasn't that hard :-)
William will probably commit it later if he thinks it's ready for final

  thanks, I hope doing those extra steps will help you use libxml2 in the
long term !
