Well, in this hanlder they use libxml2/libxslt functions and the never
calls xmlCleanupParser() or xsltCleanupGlobals().
Is it right?
I suppose that it's right because xmlCleanupParser() should be called
once at the end of the use of libxml2 library.
But they never calls it and I'd like to know if it's ok or not.

  It's okay. Because the (small) amount of memory still used by 
libxml2 will be recollected by the Operating System once the child
process exits. Calling xmlCleanupParser/xsltCleanupGlobals there is
more dangerous than useful.
