[xml] [PATCH] Added Python 3 subpackage to libxml2

Hi, all.

I am a Fedora contributor and one of the people who work on the Python-3-as-default Change staged for Fedora 22 [1]. A critical part of this effort is having a package with Python 3 bindings for libxml2.

For this reason, I have created this patch that adds the libxml2-python3 subpackage [2] while keeping all other parts of the original packaging intact. I would like to ask you to include this patch in libxml2 sources or articulate objections to it so that I can address them.

A few clarifications:
* The libxml2-python package needs to stay, there are a lot of programs depending on it, and we don't have the capacity to convert them too. * The `%make clean` part was proposed by, and discussed with, Daniel Veillard, and I believe it provides the intended results.

Thank you,

Tomas Radej
