I don't see that as a problem.  Just process the data and return "no
event for you yet" to the application.

I don't expect to be notified truely async, i.e. while some
virDomMigrate() call is in progress.  I just want be able to -- for
example -- get notified about new domains showing up while sitting
around idle without polling once per second.  Not sending notifications
while other operations are in progress is fine, just queue them up and
send them once the migration is done.
