I would be inclined to suggest that the automatic memory hotplug
should be implemented in libxl.  I hesistate to suggest atht the
existing libxl_set_memory_target should do this, so perhaps "xl
mem-set" should call a new function.

Or additional options.

Yes, certainly.

Mayb we should ahve a new version of libxl_set_memory_target which
takes an idl-generated parameter block rather than the existing two
paraemters, and also new optional numa and hotplus options ?
