I don't really see why it would. Beyond the console-client-to-daemon
interface change (which we can make not depend on the /vm_path stuff) the
rest is changing things which I believe are internal to xend.

If libvirt is really going in at this private state, perhaps we could patch
xend so that it writes to the new locations *in addition to* the old
locations. It then has its own guaranteed-private and -consistent state,
while libvirt can still read from old locations.
