Since that thread is split across two months, can I bring to everyone's 
attention the post I made yesterday:


In particular the concept at the end that we shouldn't even try to 
support every possible remote storage, but instead allow the 
administrator to write "scriptlets" (small shell scripts with a 
well-defined input & output) to perform a set of operations:

----- /etc/libvirtd.conf -------------------

allocate partition: "lvcreate -L %size -n %name XenVolGroup"
list partitions: "lvs --xml"


We can provide sample scriptlets for different operating systems and 
storage configurations.
