Maintaining a new libvirt backend is a non-trivial amount of work. The
s390 architecture has very few users, and hercules probably even less.
If someone wants to write a driver and commit to supporting it over the
long term then great, but I can think of many more productive ways to
spend dev effort that impact more users than s390 ever will
