I am OK with either path, although my understanding is 4.2 => 4.4 as well.

WRT the libvirt, libxl issues (and other libvirt things as well) ... I
am fairly sure both OpenShift Origin and RDO are going to need a newer
version of libvirt ... maybe we should start testing to try and get a
newer version of libvirt in this stack as well (and use the same version
on all 3 projects).

The current version of libvirt is close enough to the main CentOS
version that virt-manager and other pieces of the current main stack
works .. a newer libvirt will likely also mean recompiling or newer
versions of other pieces as well.
