Just for the record, once xen is both integrated into the kernel.org
kernel and running on powerpc, I will be adding "xen" as a new backend
type to schroot, so a xen instance may be created from e.g. an LVM
snapshot.  This will also have a nice side-effect in providing dchroot
and dchroot-dsa with transparent access to xen hosts, so you could
e.g. use it for package building and allow individual users root
access to individual xen hosts.

[I need the powerpc support so I can run a Xen system; if anyone else
wanted to take up the challenge, it could be done much sooner.]
