A few things. Without libxml2, you still can run htmltmpl, django, and
And (at the moment, at least) the mememe.plugin uses libxml2.
That being said, I like the idea of using lxml's xslt if it is
available. But if lxlml is not available, I would like to be able to
continue to use libxml2.
If nobody beats me to it, I will try to look into this early next week.
