I know of at least one other (by IBM) but it is not open source.

There's a possibility that TrollTech will have a C++-based
implementation this year or next, but with the purchase of the
company by Nokia, it is uncertain, I think, what will happen.
And I do not know if the XQuery implementation developed at
TrollTech is to be available publicly either.

I don't know if it's better to start with libxml or with
something like an existing XQuery engine, or something new.

Someone did approach me with some (small amount of) funding
for adding some XSLT 2 functions to libxml, and I think that
money is still available.
