[xml] empty CDATA sections

Hi folks.

As you may know, WebKit currently uses libxml2 to handle XML documents, including XHTML. I recently discovered that a number of Ian Hickson's test cases that work fine in other browsers fail in browsers based on WebKit. That's because libxml2 discards empty CDATA sections. I filed this bug:


And Mark Rowe attached a patch that resolves the issue.

Daniel pointed out that some clients of libxml2 may be depending on the current behavior; some may see this as a feature rather than a bug.

Does anyone have any comments, objections to this change perhaps or support for the change?
