I appreciate the feedback.

I read about that on libvirt.org but chose not to make any changes
since the Xen server already works with the same config I have on the
KVM server. I understood libvirt to be a layer that lets one compatible
tool work with many different hypervisors, so I didn't think I'd need to
change my libvirt config to work with KVM if it already works with Xen.
That might be a bad assumption, though, and I'm not wedded to it. :)

I did that and will take the discussion there.
