Along with a wiki for documentation that is actually kept updated when features are added/removed/changed and more importantly, that clearly states if/when obvious features are unexpectedly and conspicuously missing (e.g.
domU config file method of passing multiple USB devices to domU).

So the thing here is that I don't think any of the active developers
knew there was that limitation.  As soon as I discovered it, I just
