Why XML-RPC and not QMP?  When I skim through the patch series it
seems like much of the work being done is very similar to QMP.

What concrete use-cases are there?
* Reboot support on x86.  A QMP command can invoke guest-initiated
reboot via virtagent.
* ?

Will virtagent be extensible by host administrators or end-users?  For
example, can I drop in a custom command to collect statistics and
invoke it across VMs on my hosts?  Do I need to recompile QEMU and/or
the virtagent daemon?
