two things:

   (1) there was a typo in my code,
   (2) *I* said that XML::LibXML (the perl module) is broken, not libxml2

For (1), the xpath expression should have read /foo:foo/foo:bar. Which 
works on xsltproc:

source XML:
   <foo xmlns="urn:foo">

XSL file:
   <xsl:output method="text" />
   <xsl:template match="foo:foo">
       <xsl:value-of select="foo:bar" />

This prints "BAZ!" using xsltproc. With XML::LibXML and XML::LibXSLT, it 
doesn't even match with foo:foo.

And for (2) I originally didn't include in the CC list 
for a reason. This problem belongs to the Perl XML::LibXML maintainer 
(or us, if we can find why the heck it isn't working like xsltproc), so 
that's why I initially sent it to axkit-users only.

I certainly didn't expect Simon to forward it to you guys.
