This looks like the vnet stuff has been lost from the messaging layer, when
moving from SXP to Anthony's XML-RPC implementation.  vnet is not widely used,
and not well tested (obviously).

You have a couple of options:

1. Make xm talk the old protocol, not the newer one.  This would involve
modifying xen.xend.XendClient to look like it used to, many moons ago.  Look
through the change history to see what it ought to look like.

2. Add the messaging layer support to Xend.  This would involve modifying
xen.xend.server.XMLRPCServer to support the vnet messages.  This should be
little more than plumbing them through to xen.xend.XendVnet.

3. Wait for Xen 3.0.4 -- I'll make sure that this gets fixed properly for
