One concern I have is that AFAIK there hasn't been any non PoC client
side code posted to use this stuff, e.g. libvchan integration or AF_XEN
socket support in the kernel, etc. There are some interesting use cases
for v4v but we don't seem to actually have any ways for people to use it
for them.

I was also concerned about the lack of a maintainer now that Jean has
moved onto other things, it's one thing when a maintainer disappears
after we commit something but accepting code which has already been
orphaned is a step too far! It seems that Dominic is going to picking
that up so I'm not so concerned about that any more.
