As one of the original developers of libxenstat, I can say that we developed
it specifically as a layer to insulate programs from changes to the underlying
libraries, APIs, structure layouts, or hypercalls.  We do not intend for
existing APIs in it to change, though new ones may certainly appear.

That said, I don't currently have a lot of involvement with libxenstat, and I
don't know whether it will change or not.
