Nick,

Looks pretty good to me.

Regarding the second argument and XPath 1.0:

* It is clearly less useful without XPath 2.0
* We could still allow it and restrict it to a node-set (the closest  
XPath 1.0 has to a sequence)

One thing needs to be precised: when writing xf:element("foobar"), is  
the default namespace used or not?
