  yes I made compilation with lxc and openvz default now, so changing this
is normal.

  I would expect most development to still be done on Linux/Unix, so
that's not a big deal IMHO

  basically the changes remove compilations from the XML parsing code.
On one end I understand why it's not needed (currently) but I wonder why
this need to be defined out. Seems to me the code should compile on WIN32
and that's an important point if we ever want to get some native hypervisor
support there.
  So what miscompiled there ? Can we fix it ? in the interim having the code
compiled out as the patch does is fine, but I would like to understand.

  edit on windows will be nasty, vi or $EDITOR is unixy

  I think the patch is fine for now, but I would like to understand why
the conf files compile need to be supressed.
