As discussed recently on another thread[1], we're not currently
using UCA in jobs either. We can discuss it, but generally by the
time people start actively wanting newer whatever we're only a few
months away from the next LTS anyway. In this case I have hopes that
in a few months we'll be able to start running jobs on Ubuntu 16.04
LTS, which looks like it's going to ship with QEMU 2.5.

Alternatively, look into getting a live migration job running on
CentOS 7 or Fedora 23 if it can't wait until after Mitaka.
