Pierre-Luc may have gotten something like this working. I think he tried
something similar.

I think you can do something like redirect the events to redis and then
with a tool that uses the API and redis, build an event based overlay.

I would have to look into this deeper, but I think PLD did some work on
Thanks a lot Jayapal!

Will, that sounds nice but I have not seen anything like this.

Another interesting thing might be - as Wido suggested - to use libvirt
filters instead of our python scripts and I believe libvirt has it's own
way of hooking stuff into it. Could be another thing to explore, though it
sounds like a level lower than what you're proposing.
