I agree.  It appears the discussions around recent Linux-VServer patches 
includes tuning information in the XML description so I'm a little 
confused if this idea is being received positively or not.

I would like to avoid calling out to some other API for scheduling 
parameters at domU definition if at all possible.  Perhaps I've been 
away too long and this functionality already exists :-), but not seeing 
it in http://www.libvirt.org/format.html
