deallocated etc by Xend.

However, the functionality you want is much like we'd envisaged for the 
"cluster controller" some time in the future.  The idea behind it is to 
simplify the management of multiple Xen machines as a single pool of 

We have some preliminary design documents on this but no implementation as 
yet.  There are other people working on their own cluster management schemes
