Right, I have vdis created when xm is using XenAPI.  However xm does not
use XenAPI by default.

Hmm...  Don't know if I want to waste time creating a patch that will be
short-lived.  Are there any reasons not to have xm using XenAPI?  I.e.
what issues might I encounter if I put the following in xm-config.xml
and xend-config.sxp respectively?

  <server type='Xen-API'
          uri='httpu:///var/run/xend/xen-api.sock' />

(xen-api-server ((unix none)))

I have not encountered any issues (yet) running with this configuration,
but have only used a fraction of available commands.
