Yes, I think so too.

That's sounds great. Actually, I have tried to building xen-api and
related APIs via OPAM on the ARM Platform.
It have been build almost successfully.

However, somewhat there is x86 dependent code, i cannot build it recently.
In case of ocam-xen-lowlevel-libs, there is x86 dependent code which
refers libxc from Xen tools.
When I tried to xen-api, it gave errors because there are no function
definition that is only be built for x86.
I am wonder whether this case  should be work on Xen source or not.

I want know there is anybody who is interested in porting xen-api for ARM.
