Agreed. There are a lot of features that a generic tool like libvirt
simply doesn't support (as it is a common abstraction layer) and not
purpose-built for Xen like XAPI and libxl are.

Here is a summary of the choice of toolstacks:



It looks like Todd that in the future XAPI and libvirt will both be using libxl underneath? I would also assume that this won't change how XAPI works for a user/administrator but rather how it communicates with the Hypervisor?
