support for Namespaces in XML documents
We need to support storage, query, and retrieval of XML documents with
Namespaces (see http://www.w3.org). At a minimum this will allow us to store
and retrieve XML Schema documents, but really would be useful for a wide variety
of XML documents that might make use of namespaces.

Added support for Namespaces.
Metacat now can store and retrieve XML documents with Namespaces.
Namespace is stored as separate record in xml_nodes table with type "NAMESPACE"
where nodename is the prefix and nodedata is the uri of the namespace.
For the elements and attributes the prefix when specified is stored in a new
column: nodeprefix in xml_nodes table.
Note: Search within namespaces is not enabled.
