There are more examples and documentations of libxml2 than the VLC
wrapper. However, using libxml2 directly from VLC plugin is INVALID. It
will lead to threading race conditions and invalid frees because libxml2 is
so poorly designed.

In other words, either you use the VLC wrapper, or you use another XML
library altogether.
