I hear you. These problems are ones we're aware of and have been
discussing internally recently. We have a lot of legacy here from
XenServer's old proprietary roots. What we have now is messy and does

sustainable way. We have some thoughts on the best way to proceed
but ideas and suggests are welcome.
