Yes, I had to modify those to get it running, but it would be easier
if we could have all the variables in a single file. If I have time I
will try to clean the scripts and centralize the variable definition,
so I can publish it and add libxenlight support to OpenNebula.

The XAPI stack is currently only present in XCP, and as installable
deb packages on Debian, but I have no idea when that will get to other
operating systems, if it even does. Also I have no idea why Xen is
pushing two different new APIs (libxl and XAPI), but I guess I'm not
seeing the big picture here.

Thanks, Roger.
