It would break a current migration path to s3 storage capabilities
currently being rolled out for XEN based hypervisors
as it was mentioned in the thread. This negates our and others capabilities
to be inline with other Hypervisors, and
having to wait until a fix/patch can be applied. It also negates current
infrastructure design for commercial
and private clouds based on XEN/XCP for a more robust storage
infrastructure then is currently capable.

IMHO, aside from the technical details, your basically telling all XEN
infrastructure, too bad. no new s3 infrastructure for you, from my
perspective this is both bad practice, and again, leaves XEN/XCP users
wanting, and waiting again.....
