I thought about hacking the same approach out for libxml2. But, they
changed their libxml2-api.xml content between their releases which
blows up the generator. So, it makes it nasty. rpm has kept things
really stable in their api. 4.4.x python bindings compile pretty ok
with 4.2.x. Had to drop the PLD-requested rpmds_BT function. jbj says
it's ok and they don't use it anyway.
