  After looking a bit and since I didn't find any packaging of your
SDK in Fedora, I guess you're a bit as in the same situation as VMWare
support, the best would be to implement the RPC ans allow to talk
directly to the server as Matthias did for ESX. This will also drop
the dependancy on that package and allow remote access directly.
HTTP and XML libraries are already linked to libvirt that sounds
the right way to proceed,
