But wasn't the request about splitting off the library part from a 
bigger package that contains all about xen? So that there is a xen-lib 
split-package and the rest, so that everyone providing services for xen, 
could be build with only the xen-lib package as a requirement and don't 
hast to pull in the whole xen-package just for building?
