  I prefer the current behaviour as I expect name to be significant in the
future and NULL (or None from python) to mean local Xen access.

  Okay I had something similar but less complete in my tree. I need to
incorporate more examples, I started with a C file but I will need to add
python examples too.

  this is a bit bizarre, that how the hypervisor direct call report 
'unlimited' maxMem. If you run the same as an user the information 
extracted from xend will usually be equal to the 'memory' value.

  running as root allow direct hypercall, and hence the maximum precision
provided by the Xen hypervisor for time consumption

   Now 'import libvirt' with 0.0.4
you can do something like

    import libvirt
    import libvir
    libvirt = libvir

if you want to be able to still use both

> virt=libvir.open("Xen");

   Use libvirt.open(None)
 And the ; separator at the end of line is C, though legal in Python it
looks a bit strange :-)

  thanks, and sorry for the delay when answering !
