libvmmapi exists to support bhyveload and bhyve. It's as you say an internal
library. While there is obviously nothing to preclude it’s use by others, I
wouldn’t consider it’s interfaces “public” nor “stable”. Furthermore, though
there has been some consideration taken not to recycle the kernel interface
ioctls, I’d also classify those interfaces as “private” and “unstable”.
