Quite.  I think that the key problem we have at the moment is lack of
maintainer time, not lack of appropriate tools.

I replied to this in my other message, but once again:  I think
actually that the Xen people and the KVM people will get on fine.

I'm certainly looking forward to seeing many more of the KVM changes
appearing as proposals and patches here, when we have an effective
system for getting such things discussed, reviewed, and committed.
