For our forthcomming release of UCS-3.0 we really wanted to switch from Xend 
to xl, but be had to switch back to using Xend, because libvirt still lacks 
some important features like migration; see 
<http://libvirt.org/hvsupport.html> for a comparison matrix. Back at the 
beginning of 2011 Univention sponsored Markus Gross to work on the xl-binding 
of libvirt, but after the end of his internship I have not seen that much 
work on the xl-binding in libvirt except from Jim Fehlig.
