Sorry, but we aren't lawyers here, we are programmers. Do you have a
patch that shows what you are trying to describe here? Care to post it?

How does this differ with the way that the Xen developers are proposing?
Why haven't you worked with them to find a solution that everyone likes?

And what about Rusty's proposal that is supposed to be the "middle
ground" between the two competing camps? How does this differ from
that? Why don't you like Rusty's proposal?

Please, start posting code and work together with the other people that
are wanting to achive the same end goal as you are. That is what really
matters here.
