FYI, I just had a chat with the lead xapi developer.  He's said that
unfortunately management has told them not to work on the open-source
xapi packages (at least for now); so if there is nobody in the
community willing to maintain it, then I think removing it is probably
the best option.

On a related note -- what version of libvirt / Xen will be in Trusty?
The SuSE guys have made a lot of progress on getting good support for
libxl and libvirt; that's probably the best way forward.
