Apologies for the self-serving inquiry, but I thought I'd come over and
address an issue I found over in Ruby-land (Nokogiri) while working with
some HTML fragments in a Rails application.

I noticed that the suite of "element children" functions
(xmlChildElementCount, xmlFirstElementChild and xmlLastElementChild) don't
work on document fragments. However, it's something I frequently want to do
while inspection partial sections of templates that would later be rolled
into a complete web page.

Is there any standards- or design-based reason for this? I'd like to
convince the Nokogiri maintainers to include this functionality, but I
don't want to cause a divergence in behavior from libxml2.

I worked up a really simple patch and attached it to my bug

 Yep, that looks just fine, applied and pushed,

  thanks !
