Block device and network interface setup has been working in the control
tools CVS for several days, and is fully integrated with the xend tools.
It would be more helpful if you would integrate with that code instead
of going off on your own.

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.

What can I say? I was under the impression we were all working together on
modifying xend and the drivers to use xenstore. Going off and doing your
own thing hardly helps. If you had issues with the current code perhaps
it might have been better to have raised them? Up to now you have not voiced
any concerns. It's disappointing you seem to be choosing confrontation rather
than collaboration.

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
