Package: libxml2-utils
Version: 2.6.22-1
Severity: minor

"xmllint" gives a list of options. In general, ":" is preceded by
a space, but not for these lines:

        --path 'paths': provide a set of paths for resources
        --nocatalogs: deactivate all catalogs
        --sax1: use the old SAX1 interfaces for processing
        --sax: do not build a tree but work just at the SAX level

Consistency may be useful to avoid bugs with programs that parse
these data (e.g. for shell completion).
