[Openstack-operators] [nova] can we deprecate the xvp console?

I noticed today that nova.console.xvp hits the database directly for
console pools. We should convert this to objects so that the console
service does not have direct access to the database (this is the only
console I see that hits the database directly). However, rather than go
through the work of create an object for ConsolePools, if no one is
using xvp consoles in nova then we could deprecate it.
It looks like it was added back in diablo  (at least).
Someone from Rackspace in IRC said that they weren't using it, so given
it's for xenserver I assume that means probably no one is using it, but
we need to ask first.
Please respond else I'll probably move forward with deprecation at some
point in mitaka-1.
