The upside of making it be an int is that we could have
libxl_get_domain_type to return a proper libxl error code on failure,
so that it could explain the cause of the failure more carefully.
However, I think this is theoretical.  A failure return is always
going to be morally equivalent to ERROR_RETURN.

And the upside of making it be an enum is precisely
