It would appear that loading a file located at a https url using load_xml fails with a 'file not found' error. I believe this may have something to do with not handling certificates correctly though this is only a hunch, and I'm relatively sure this has worked in the recent past?

I suspect that this is a problem with libxml2, and not with XML::LibXML per se. Evidence I've collected that suggests that libxml2 simply doesn't support https-based URLs: https://stackoverflow.com/a/57328510 https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=791220 So, I feel doubtful that XML::LibXML can do much about this, other than note it in its own documentation. (And I plan to submit a doc patch to this end, presently.)
