I don't have experience in libvirt and I don't use it on xen server.
I'm trying to improve xen hvm domUs performance and features (not only
for hvm) even if probably I don't have enoght knowledge and time to do
I used libvirt only in fast kvm tests and I saw that with kvm have
already support for spice usbredir, image compression and streaming
options but I probably not able to implement the same options for xen
too fast and in a good and complete way.
