It's not clear what exactly you're talking about, but I guess this is about
the `--xpath` option and the bug you already posted:
I agree that printing text nodes without a separator is rather useless and I
always found it annoying that the output isn't terminated with a newline at
all. In this case, I'm not too concerned about backward compatibility and I'd
simply change the `--xpath` output to always print a newline after each node,
text or not. But maybe other people want to weigh in.
