I think it can be done with the existing xl interface, TBH, but it's
probably ugly.  I would have no problem with an option which made xl
make the network connection itself.

I think this should be doable by running xl migrate-receive out of
inetd, or some kind of socket-activation-based feature of an
init-replacement (eg upstart).

If not this should be fixed.
