The general case is certainly very complicated. I'd like to make it really easy 
to install an example configuration for testing/demo purposes ("xe vm-install"; 
"xe vm-start" and you're done). Probably the best we can do for the more 
complicated cases is attempt to support the tools the distro makers create.

Thanks for adding some ideas to the wiki! I like the 
automatic-switch-to-VM-console idea in particular.
