I've committed the debian-cd changes with a few very minor (style) 
corrections. The implementation is IMO quite nice and clean.

The size increase from enabling the Xen variant for the m-a netinst is 
55MB (main changes are ~20MB from the extra bigmem kernel image and ~30MB 
from added D-I kernels and initrds). This is a fairly big increase, but 
the multi-arch netinst can handle it.

Ian: feel free to commit the changes for D-I (after the corrections) and 
when that's done I'll enable the Xen variant for the CD builds.
