But wrt raisin, does it make sense to have the specific changesets we're
looking at mixed in with the updates to raisin itself, particularly in
its infancy, where the functionality will be in flux quite a bit?

If xenproject.org has a libvirt.git with a "xen-tested-master", would it
make sense to have something similar for all the other repos?  Perhaps
with "xen-tested-${version}-master" for specific releases?

Making raisin just the build tool, and storing the "build this version
with this version" somewhere else (like in xenbits git branches) makes
more sense to me.
