I have implemented a webserver plugin that allows (by mDNS) to access 
all 'VMs' on the network.

Using mDNS, mDNS events can be used on the network to subscribe to 
certain VM changes. Reboot/Shutdown/etc.

You proposed (new) bindings for Java. I have written new bindings using 
the HTTP protocol. I wonder what should be done to get it adapted into 
libvirt, or standardize the format (like any other API).
