The whole stats reporting interface certainly needs more thought.

However, I think it definitely should still use the xml-rpc interface,
we just need to 'cook' the raw data into something more directly useful
within xend so that there's no need to do high-rate polling on the API.
This might involve using something like rrdtool to generate averages
over different time scales etc.
