Unfortunately they didn't make it to GSoC 2012...

Judging from the description above, it looks like that sheepdog will be
QEMU independent in the future? But such project is not Xen dependent
either, so it is hard to put it under Xen umbrella.

The best bet now is to have libsheepdog ready and we do some plumber job
to make it Xen available (but I don't know how much work ahead). This
can be a potential GSoC project for Xen.
