 Quick patch to the importer allows fallback if an invalid XML file is

 One export I made earlier today from 3.1-alpha (pre r15961) did not work
 on trunk import, and libxml_get_errors() returned quite a few malformation
 errors. This allows that file to be processed.

 Patch is pretty lame. If we're receiving a WP_Error for malformed WXR, we
 should probably just go straight to regexp instead of stopping at libxml
 first. Also, the many WP_Errors that get returned in $class::parse()
 should probably have unique IDs (to the class), that way we can better
 detect invalid XML versus, say, incorrect format.
