I put this patch on the back burner given Anthony's response in 

I recently considered continuing this work until we started the 
discussions on Xen Management API :-).  To be honest, now I'm not sure 
what to do.  I will be on vacation next week but probably have time to 
finish this patch before leaving.  However this code will certainly be 
thrown out at some point.  Guess the question is how far out is "some 
point"?  Is it worth doing the xml -> sexp conversion and working around 
some of the inconveniences in xend discussed earlier in this thread?  If 
we think the current state of affairs will exist for several more months 
then perhaps so.
