in thread Namespaced XML::LibXML XPath query

So what you're saying is my xpath needs to be written like this:

$doc->findnodes('//myns:root/myns:stuff/myns:items/myns:book');
Given the following:
<root xmlns="http://goobar/xml" xmlns:myns="http://goobar/xml"> <stuff> <items> <book>XML Namespaces</book> </items> </stuff> </root>
That is really an ugly xpath expression.
