Yes, and the recent libvirt 1.2.2 release included a first prototype
for BHyve driver support thanks to a lot of hard work by FreeBSD
developer Roman Bogorodskiy, who is now an official libvirt maintainer.
We're not calling it production ready, as it hasn't had any serious
realworld usage yet, and it is probably missing features that OpenStack
needs, but work is actively progressing so watch this space....

If people are interested in helping out with dev / testing work of
libvirt BHyve/FreeBSD, we'd welcome more contributors to libvirt....
