Cool. I've been looking at the website and source trying to get a  
handle on the architecture and how to fit in the VI SDK. I would like  
to discuss the possibility of adding a third architecture.

The source for ivi was just committed and is viewable at http://www.lostcreations.com/code/browser/trunk/utilities/com.lostcreations.ivi 
. Bear in mind that this is the first commit. It just allows you to  
connect and list the contents of VMware and Xen servers. As soon as I  
get libvirt compiled and working on my Mac I will replace the XenApi  
java bindings with the libvirt java bindings.
