I tried using xenapi about 8 months ago...

Back then - it was messy, and underdocumented, IMO - and a large reason why  started to look at libvirt in the first place. 
It seemed...shoe-horned into an existing scheme, with a new API.

There was some effort a little while back to shore this up...but I don't know where, or if that really went anywhere.

I think it would be a mistake to integrate that project into this one.
