Damned, this is getting confusing. I asked Sergej to rename perl-libxml 
and perl-libxml-common to perl-xml-libxml-common. I quote myself here:

But I got no reply. Come on guys, we need some more synchronisation on 
these things!!!

OK, I've untagged perl-libxml and perl-libxml-common and I added the 
necessary provides, conflicts and replaces fields in the PKGBUILD of 
perl--xml-libxml and perl-xml-libxml-common. I'll also rename 
perl-io-gzip to perlio-gzip.
