Damm, Well at least a conclusive answer. I am assuming it would be relatively
big undertaking to write a new driver?

  No idea, look at other drivers, some are simple enough, others are
more complex. But basically since it's not open-source the amount
of interested people will shink, there is also the problem of connecting
libvirt and the XenE management depending on the Licencing terms of
their own stack. It's not game over, but it sounds like restarting from
scratch...

Ouch, no xend?

Another option is for someone to add another additional virt-type to koan and install it "some other way" (wrap xm create?), but I agree, if it's not open source it's not that interesting for many of us to work on, so it runs the risk of going unmaintained unless you'd want to own it. (We do some of that for VMware already -- see koan's source tree for details)
