This is intriguing - do you have any docs about this alternate control
plane which elaborate on its architecture & API, and the benefits it
brings over the current control plane ? When 3.0.4 development starts,
the new control API will be one of the core bits of work so understanding
this work you've done is very topical. Even if there's no desire to do
wholesale replacement of the Python daemons, ideas/lessons learnt from 
the API / network protocols may well be valuable.

Is the alternate Dom0 control plane agent code here compatible with the
current Xen unstable/3.0.3 HV & Dom0 kernel, or does it have dependancies
on changes you made to HV / dom0 too ?
