Yes, this could certainly be improved.

You mean close-on-exec?
the libxl interfaces for exec'ing takes care of closing file handles and
since xl is a one-shot toolstack it generally doesn't have piles of fd's
open. The issue is still worth considering and checking for correctness
though I think, especially within libxc (which has other users than xl).
Do you know of specific instances where the CLOEXEC flag is needed but
I don't think any of the above qualifies xl as so broken we shouldn't
even suggest people try it, as you started out by saying...
