  I think we were supportive of the V-Server patch too. The discussion
was only about the XML format used.
  In general adding support for new hypervisors in libvirt is a good
idea, this means less effort at the tool level. The most confusing seems
the small twaeks needed at the XML format to adapt to specifics of the
hypervisors/virtualization, but hopefully with the new format documentation
this should get clearer now,
