It should -- I believe I even tried it out once or twice. The errors
below look like they're all pretty trivial to fix.

I think this is a lock file added to xm migrate? From the sound of it,
it's a global lock rather than per-domain, which would be
unnecessarily conservative. Probably easy to fix.

Yes, this is also quite a straightforward bug. The remus script
hardcodes imq0 instead of looking for the next available
device. Should be pretty easy to fix -- want to give it a shot?
