The current package from pkg-xen is not releasable.
- Overwrites xen binary package without an upgrade procedure.
- Uses xen as source name, which at least the kernel team knows that
this may easily break if more than one version is needed.
- All core binary packages lacks the version in the name.
- The installed xen image lacks a version in there name and another
identification, which type it is.
- The hg-to-dist script is crap as hg is not able to show me the
revision of the working copy, only the revision of the repo. As they
propose that to build release tars, this will sooner or later break
