Good to hear :)

I've been using it more and more recently and it'll been good for me
too, even with live migrations.

What distribution are you using ?

I'd like to ... but I ave no idea how or even who to contact for that
... blktap is so fragmented ...

You have blktap2 which is in the man Xen tree. But that's not what's
used in debian (it's not installed / compiled)

You have the so called blktap2.5 which is what's on github and what I
have based my stuff on. It's also what's shipped with debian as
blktap-utils I think.
I also think Citrix have their own version based off blktap2.5 as well.

And soon there will be blktap3 in the official Xen tree.

I want to at least get it merged in blktap3 but since that code is not
ready (or even merged) yet, it's a bit early for that. That's also
probably Xen 4.4 or Xen 4.5 stuff and so won't hit debian for a while.
