Hi Alex,

How do you think, what is the rough estimation of adding ESX API support to CloudStack?
AFAIU the main point of integration of the new API is plugins/hypervisors. Are there any other
major points that should be patched when adding a new hypervisor type?

time (before Apache), the features that requested needed vCenter. There's currently no proposal
to use plain ESXi.  Would love to see one though.
