I've posted an email one month ago about this and the support of Xen
via libvirt [1]. We are happy users of this ad we would love to see
it being promoted form the use-at-your-own-risk group C to group B.
Should we add it to the list of drivers in the group C, and add another
column to the table so that we can start filling it with the
supported/working features? Should I fill a blueprint for this?
