I think I can get motivated or get someone that is motivated or even 
motivate someone to write these bindings for PHP. I'll discuss the 
implications on friday. The problem is probably not the writing of the 
binding, but more getting it distributed as a stable extension.

But my personal interest goes out to libvirtd overlord capabilities. By 
extending the API with the capability of transparently connecting to an 
other machine announced by avahi or added by an xml file.

Or just exending libvirtd with proxy functionality. I would like to hear 
the Red Hat ideas on this one.

So going for an 'architecture' like storage that is able to 
register/discover neighbor nodes. Or just sticking with an 'external' 
program that is able to do this task.
