I have been on vacation. My contributions to date have been minor,
but I am have a vested interest in getting the memory model problem
resolved. I did something similar for the Berkeley DB library, which
had a completely faulty binding approach and rewrote it entirely and
now is completely memory stable and essentially fault-free.
My biggest problem is the documentation for libxml2 seems to rather
suck in relation to the complexity of the interface. So I have not
been able to get my head around the options for solving this problem.
My past (long ago) uses of SWiG for other purposes left much to be
desired, so I have no opinion about that.
The first thought I have is to look for another language binding that
works well and see if that approach can be made to work for Ruby.
This does seem to be the best XML solution, so getting it all fixed
up seems like a really good idea. It seems to be bigger than one
person can manage on a part time basis, but there needs to be a
unified vision of how to approach the problem.
