[buug] Xen sational!

I now have two periods of renting a xen virtual server behind me, and I
am firmly convinced that, for that purpose, it sucks.  In a nutshell,
the problem is that while you have root on the guest system, you can't
reconfigure or upgrade the kernel.

Now, if you have control over the hypervisor, and use virtualization
to isolate apps from one another, that may be a very different story.
