   ACK to the overall cleanup, I'm just a bit dubious about
   xmlXPathContextPtr initialization in the helper, as I like to have
allocations and frees matched to the same level. It's easier to forget
to free the context if one doesn't "see" it allocated. But it's a minor

I think you can still "see" the allocations - it's just that virXMLParse does one allocation (return value), while virXMLParseCtxt does two allocations (return value, and allocation into passed pointer). Yes, it does mean that one virXMLParseCtxt call results in two separate free calls, but hopefully we don't introduce leaks because of it, and coding by copy-paste should still work at cleaning both variables.

At any rate, I've now pushed the series.
