So basicly Debian takes the same route as Fedora did (see my other mail
about it).

It's understandable from the distribution/kernel maintencance point of view. 

But it's really sucky for the users.. This needs good documentation in the
release notes etc.. so people realize lenny won't support Xen virtualization
anymore (running virtual machines on lenny host).
