Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH 00 of 15] libxl: ocaml: improve the bindings

Great timing: I am currently investigating how to port xenopsd/xapi to libxl 
(for XCP and XenServer), and have been playing with these bindings as well. I 
indeed noticed a few shortcomings and omissions.

I think that is a good idea.

I'll use your patches as a base for my own improvements to the bindings. Thanks 
for releasing these.
