So a couple of things:

* CloudStack (in its current form) won't build without libvirt-java.

This means either:
a. CloudStack declares libvirt-java to be a system requirement
b. We break out KVM support and make it an optional/non-default part
of the build

Both of the above result in cloud-libvirt.jar being removed from the repo.
