[openstack-dev] [nova][xenapi] can we deprecate the xenapi-specific 'nova-console' service?

Greetings Devs and Ops,

Today I noticed that our code does not handle the 'nova-console' service 
properly in a multi-cell deployment and given that no one has complained 
or reported bugs about it, we're wondering if anyone still uses the 
nova-console service. The documentation [1] says that the nova-console 
service is a "XenAPI-specific service that most recent VNC proxy 
architectures do not use."

Can anyone from xenapi land shed some light on whether the nova-console 
service is still useful in deployments using the xenapi driver, or is it 
an old relic that we should deprecate and remove?

Thanks for your help,
