Thread-topic: [Xen-tools] [PATCH 1/2] Interface cleanup and renaming
> Would it make sense to make it more hierarchical such as:
> xm <subsystem> <command>

I can see some value in this, but would we have to add an extra 'noun'
in front of our current commands e.g. "xm domain create" ?

It would be a bit tedious to type this, though the abreviation mechanism
would mean "xm do cr" would work. Or, are there sufficiently few
commands that currently don't have a 'noun' that we don't need to add

It would be good to see what the list would look like.
