By "mobile friend APIs" I assuming you mean XML-RPC / HTTP+REST. It could
certainly be interesting to have a web services daemon that you could
run on each libvirt host to map the libvirt API to HTTP. (Or something
that plugs into Apache or one of the tiny HTTP servers aimed at the
"embedded" web services. Dunno who's going to write such a thing though...
