While migration is going on, you can't change the cdrom media, look at cpu registers, or do anything that requires the monitor.
On my TODO list is adding a '-d' option like we have in the KVM tree. It'll be there before it gets committed.

This both reduces the functionality and complicates management applications. IMO migration should have asynchronous notification (and no, I don't think multiple monitors is the correct solution).
