Feature #9379: Support for using libxml-ruby as XML parser in xmlrpc-libs
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/9379

Author: herwinw (Herwin Weststrate)
Status: Open
Priority: Normal
Assignee: 
Category: lib
Target version: 


The default backend in the XMLRPC parser is REXML. This should work at most occasions, but it definitely isn't the fastest implementation. The attached patch allows a backend using libxml-ruby <http://xml4r.github.io/libxml-ruby/> which should be more efficient. It successfully passes the unit tests available in the file test/xmlrpc/test_parser.rb

The default isn't changed in this patch, so when libxml-ruby isn't available nothing is changed. Even if it's available, you still have to change the parsing backend before it is used.
