Note that removal of xen qemu-traditional from Debian is purely Debian's
No doubt.  But very few -know- that traditional does not ship with Debian.  Hell, very few know that traditional was needed for VGA passthrough.  And the irc channel has little but questions.
Other distros ship qemu-traditional.
Are you saying that qemu-xen 4.4 does not have VGA passthru support?  Meaning that I should use qemu-xen-traditional?
I've just discovered that xen-tools does not ship with the 4.4 source package.  I'm missing xen-create-image and friends.  This isn't menioned anywhere.  Maybe this is because they're not promulgated by the Xen project?  Wonder what else I'm missing.  My two front teef?
Sure these are User questions.  But they'll be asked over and over in -users until someone has time to work on docs.  I ask here for the good of Xen.  Otherwise you'll never know where the problems are.
