This is no code that I'm aware of. With the recent libvirt code refactoring
it should be much quicker/easier to develop additional hypervisor backends
if someone is motivated .... :-)

Most of the interest in the past  has been for VMWare ESX server. From
what I understand we'd need to have completely different drivers for
ESX  vs  Player/Workstation  because they have no common management API
capabilities we can use. We'd welcome patches to write a driver for
either ESX or Player/Workstation or both, since they all have valid use
