If there are reasons that Xend doesn't want to interact with the monitor

certainly discuss how to enhance the monitor (like having multiple
monitor instances).

Multiple monitor instances would be very useful anyway.

The trick here is to add a MonitorState context to every callback and have term_printf() take a MonitorState as the first argument. It's a mostly mechanical change.

Right now there is no way to use the monitor for libvirt-managed qemu
instances because libvirt uses the monitor.  Being able to both use
libvirt *and* have a monitor prompt to type commands would be great.

It would make the current monitor multiplex hackery a lot cleaner too.
