I took a look at the C library:

* It's LGPLv2+, so there is no license issue that I can see with
linking it to libvirt.

* It presents each XenServer API call as a C function.  Each C
function constructs an XML document (XMLRPC, I think), dispatches it
to the server, gets the reply, and unpacks the resulting XML.

* Uses libxml2 to do the XML construction and parsing.

* You have to supply your own HTTP library to pass the data to the
server.  The examples use libcurl for this.

* Compiles with -Wall -Werror without warnings or errors.

It seems reasonably sensible.  It still requires the proprietary
XenEnterprise to be installed for testing of course.
