So I finally had a chance to take a quick look at Nokogiri, and 
discovered its another wrapper around libxml.

So the obvious question is why didn't you build off the libxml-ruby 
bindings?   And then the next obvious question, would it be better to 
combine efforts?  Seems to me that would be much preferable.

I just integrated a patch for adding Hpricot like api to libxml, and 
would be really interested in adding in CSS3 selector support (I took a 
quick look through the Nokogiri code for this, and would be happy to 
port it over to libxml lock-stock-and-barrel if that's ok with you).

So we're happy to work together on our end.
