+1 to abstract it.  We have lots of applications that require libxml2, 
and those could be rationalised by switching to use it in apr_xml too.
There may be other use cases floating around.  Not to mention the
possibility of apps with no requirement for any apr_xml.

But don't bust a gut over it.  We've lived for years with it hardwired.
