Sorry for jumping in here, but the "lookup port" thingy rings a bell ;)

A IMHO useful feature would be mdns announcements via avahi for vnc 
screens and text consoles (assuming they are not bound to, so 
they are actually reachable from other machines).

I've hacked up a mdns announce utility.  Works using xenstore watches. 
Has the drawback of announcing everything (because xenstore doesn't tell 
you whenever it is bound to localhost or not) and is obviously limited 
to xen.  libvirt should be able to do that in a better way.  Or maybe 
qemu should do that directly?
