Are/were you aware of https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pyxs which sounds
like something similar, judging from its blurb alone?

https://launchpad.net/pyxenstore/ might be too, although I don't know if
that one is pure python.

Anyhow is your intention to have this added to the xen.git tree, perhaps
even replacing tools/python/xen/lowlevel/xs/ or just to gather feedback
on some code destined for an external project?

Personally I don't see a problem with including it in tree, replacing
xen.lowlevel.xs might require thinking a little about API compatibility,
which might be a pain...
