You probably want to send this to et-mgmt-list, which is where virt-manager
development happens, but I will comment on one thing below...

I sent an e-mail last month with proposals for doing this within libvirt.  I put
up all of the information I have in the libvirt wiki here:


(if you have more ideas, please add them).  In short, yes, we really want to do
some pre-migration sanity checking, and I think that libvirt is probably the
right place to do them.  Someone needs to think about it further, though, and
then sit down and implement it.
