I'm just wondering why this happened?

The mini-os repository is open for development, it's just a matter of
agreeing on how to implement features :)

That could already be a build option in MiniOS.  It seems it actually
already is, via $(CONFIG_XENBUS)=n.

If launching UniCore allows to get momentum to achieve that, I'm all for
it, I'm just wondering whether the problem is not actually about putting
a name on it, but just discussing here what is needed, and see how to
implement it all within the same repository. But again, I understand
that putting a name can trigger that discussion and be a "let's do it!"
message :)
