No.  I completely disagree with what you've done.  I disagree with how
you use the store, both here and in most other places.  Your changes
made the xenbus code more complicated to suit a usage model which is a
retrograde step.

Rather than criticise in the abstract, I believe that the way to solve
these kind of disputes is to present a concrete implementation of one's
idea, so people can compare.  I don't expect you to implement my vision
of how things should be, but it's completely incompatible with your
work, and I've finally had the opportunity to implement it.

I will continue to develop this as my conscience dictates.  You should
do the same.  As always, I aim to create code which is convincing in
