Come, come, pressing that other one (compose new/write/whatever)
shouldn't be that hard. ;)

Yeah, it is. :) You're right, I should address that library as libxml2.
Assuming that everybody know libxml is old and depreciated is wrong.
I'll fix that.

Adding Autoconf is already in TODO for that exact reason. The problem
is - I have never used it before. So unless somebody volunteers to
implement it, I'll have to go and read some docs on the subject. :)

But it _will_ be in the next version, I promise.
(That promise should make me implement it ASAP. ;)
