Hi all,

I've put a new version of the Xen Management API document and the
corresponding C bindings on the Xen-API wiki page (and they are attached).
There's nothing very exciting in the document -- I've just updated the todo
list, basically.

The C bindings have been updated to the new way of passing results back and
handling errors.  The API calls now look a lot like this:

    xen_vm vm;
    if (!xen_vm_get_by_uuid(session, &vm,
        return 1;

That is, you pass a pointer to the result destination, which will be filled if
the call is successful, or NULL otherwise, and you get a boolean result from
the actual function call to tell you whether or not an error occurred.

I've also added the appropriate casts so that this code compiles under GCC 4.0
with -Werror.

Have fun hacking, and to all the Brits out there, happy holidays,
