Hi all,

I've been doing a lot of work on libxc. I've got it to the point that I'm ready to share. Below are the major changes. Feedback is greatly appreciated, especially with respect to things that would be required for it to be integrated into the xen-unstable tree.

o Rename libxc => libxen
o Use pkg-config to control versioning and parallel installs
o Use autoconf to detect dependencies, provide separate build directory, cross-compile
o Use doxygen to autogenerate HTML documentation
o Organize hypercalls by groups in separate headers (dom.h, evtchn.h, etc.). o Provide consistent error semantics for all functions (-errno is returned on error).
o Use pyrex to autogenerate python bindings
o Provide high-level python interface (Xen() and Domain() classes instead of direct hypercalls)

Below is a URL for a tarball and another URL for the doxygen generate documentation.
