Log message:
	Thanks to the generous support of Torchbox (http://www.torchbox.com), I
	have been able to significantly improve the contrib/xml XPath
	integration code.
	
	New features:
	
	* XPath set-returning function allows multiple results from an several
	XPath queries to be used as a virtual table.
	* Using libxslt, XSLT transformations (with and without parameters) are
	supported. (Caution: This support allows generic URL fetching from
	within the backend as well).
	
	I've removed the old code so that it is all libxml based. Rather than
	attach as a patch, I've put the tar.gz (10k!) at
	http://www.azuli.co.uk/pgxml-1.0.tar.gz
	(all files in archive are xml/....).
	
	I think this is worth replacing the contrib version with, even though
	the function names have changed (though the same functionality is
	there), because it includes a SRF and some SPI usage, in addition to
	linking to an external library. And it isn't a big module! Obviously, I
	understand that people might prefer to move it elsewhere, or might have
	reservations about replacing an existing contrib module with an
	incompatible one. I'm open to suggestions.
