  I will endeavor to find some free time over the weekend to have a 
 play with the xenstored code, and see if I can watch events from it.
 No promises at all, but if I get anywhere I'll post an update.

  Right now I can use "xenstore-ls" to get a snapshot, and I guess
 I could do that every five seconds or so to be able to detect newly
 created domains, and existing ones which have been shutdown.
 That's not ideal, but for a first pass should let me get something working.

  Downside is I'd probably have to write the daemon in python to
 get it into the core, right?
