  I now provide python bindings, I see no problem providing ruby ones
too, I expect those to be activated by configure flags and detection
of the available runtime.
  In general (i.e. other projects) I think I'm known to say "I take patches"
quite often, I don't see why I would change this with libvir :-)

  Positively yes, we want to ship libvir in RHEL, and of course Fedora too.

  yes, also because the methodology of control of the Xen engine was unclear
but as Anthony Liquori pointed out it is possible to do this via the HTTP 
access to xend. Another point is that I would like libvir to be potentially
available for other emulation technologies, but I don't think we should limit
to a strict subset.

  Sounds good ?
