We're sorry about this, we felt it was necessary to break the API
between 4.1 and 4.2 in order that we can support a stable API from 4.2
onwards (I think we discussed this at the time?). From 4.2 onwards we
will make changes in a compatible way or provide compatibility shims etc
or in extreme circumstances do things in a way which is easily
detectable e.g. via configure tests.

I was wondering the other day if "libxl v2" support for libvirt might
make a nice GSoC project, what do you think? Would you be interested in
mentoring such a project?
