  - Removed dependency on xmlrpc-c for data transport. Now using JSON via QEMU's qjson 
qobject<->json conversion routines. Binary encoding mechanisms such as Protocol 
Buffers and ASN.1/BER were considered, but due to limited library support, and limitations 
of isa/virtio serial transport that would have required an additional layer of encoding to 
reliably determine RPC boundaries during transport (more here: 
http://www.mail-archive.com/address@hidden/msg56237.html), qobject<->json seemed to 
be the most prudent route.

Then it needs to be based on QAPI. No point in reinventing the wheel. It won't be bidirectional though. The guest will only be able to post events.
