I don't think it'll make any significant difference - we can do the
alternate XML syntax you proposed already. I think it might be nice
to use a different approach to the Xen impl of it though. Previously
have had done the poool/volume -> filename conversion in libvirt before
passing the data to XenD. This means that when you don't the XML you
get the filename instead of pool/volume details, and doesn't deal with
potentially different filenames upon migration. So I'd like to see if
its possible to write a custom script for xen to go in /etc/xen/scripts.
So we can pass in a pool/volume to Xend and have it auto-lookup the
file at time of hotplug.
