    curl_xml plugin: New plugin to fetch and parse XML files.
    Do find the curl_xml.c source file attached. The implementation is done as I
    suggested in my previous mail.
    The supported configuration is as follows:
    <xpath "/path/to/node(s)">
       InstancePrefix "test" # optional
       Instance "path/to/textnode"  # optional if base xpath expression returns
    single result i.e one matching node
       Values "path/to/textnode1"  "path/to/textnode2"
       Type "magic_level"
    I have done some level of testing to make sure plugin is working. If someone
    is interested in testing/trying the plugin, do the following:
    - apply the attached patch on the 4.9.0 branch
    - copy the attached curl_xml.c to the collectd-4.9.0/src
    - run autconf to generate new configure script containing changes to build
    curl_xml plugin
    - build and install collectd (make && make install)
    Do let me know if anyone has problem building/running the plugin.
    Any comments/suggestions are welcome.
