Hi Peter,

 From the perspective of long-term preservation, we believe it's 
important to build our system entirely from open-source software.  There 
is no guarantee that XenClient will be available even five years from 
now, or that it will continue to supply the required functionality at an 
acceptable price.  The KVM/qemu/libvirt virtualization stack is 
developed by a diverse community, is controlled by no single entity, and 
can be modified or extended if necessary to better support our requirements.
