Unless I'm mistaken, this only seeems to disable QEMU related code. It
doesn't seem to touch anything in the server qemud/* directory. Which
is fine, of course - there shouldn't be any dependancy between the
server & QEMU any more. It should be possible to have libvirtd without
the QEMU driver present no problem.

So, ACK to this.

AFAIK, the main problem is the inter-twining of the QEMU and the network
driverrs. That's the key bit we need to make independant, so you can
have Xen only + networking stuff, but no QEMU.
