If it's this feature that you referred to when discussing the "xl
block-attach 0 ..." shortcomings (including the blkback-over-loop
that's currently unavailable with xl), then count this as a "+1"
for this being a blocker - if we want 4.2 to push forward the
deprecation status of xend, then (known) regressions like this
should get eliminated.
