Ok, I've uploaded to debian's experimental tree. This is to make certain it
doesn't blow up when people install it(even tho I'm using it locally).
The main problem with it is that it doesn't do upgrades from 1.2 at all.
All the above TODO items are solved, except that the xendomains init script
doesn't implement force-reload.
If you want to fetch the packages before they are processed thru debian's NEW
archive, then visit http://people.debian.org/~doogie/packages/. The debs, and
source archives, are both there.
