I can't speak for a lot of stuff in contrib/ but I find the vhost-user
backends like vhost-user-blk and vhost-user-scsi helpful for testing and
development. I would like to keep maintaining those two at least.

Again, I can't say much for other stuff in subprojects/ but
libvhost-user is clearly important. Maybe we move libvhost-user to
another directroy and the libvhost-user based backends there too?
